One thing I left out of the "Let's Fight About Copyright!" post from yesterday: I believe TOP readers are the best group of people on the entire far-flung World Wide Web. Yeah, I'm prejudiced, but that's what I believe.
Even people who get full-on pissed off—a rarity—will usually turn friendly and nice if I remember to keep my own calm. And our commenters, who are only a small subset of the audience—well, they're the people who keep me interested. They educate me every day, contribute to every discussion, lend credibility to abstract discussions with firsthand knowledge and experience, help me write the material for the website, tip me off to things I had no clue existed, and make me laugh with their wit, drollery, or singular skill in self-expression.
No one who writes for the web would mind more readers, but the ones I've got are the best there are, and please, never let my occasional kvetching imply otherwise.
