(By chris the cynic)
So, on the one hand, these threads never seem to work, on the other hand the Monday Meet and greet is on the verge of tradition. We did one at typepad, we did one during our short stint at blogger, and now that we’ve found a hopefully permanent home we haven’t done one yet.
The reason they never work is because the lurkers seldom come out and the regular commenters assume that everyone already knows everything there is to know anyway.
So I’m calling on the lurkers to delurk for a bit to introduce themselves, and to the regular commenters: Assume for a moment I know nothing. Based on that assumption, introduce me (and everyone else) to you as you see fit.
