Welcome, Elemenope!

Give a warm welcome to our newest contributor, Elemenope! El has been around here for a long time (his first comment was in Jan 2009 and he’s made 3,700 comments), and I’ve always been impressed by his ability to think clearly and write persuasively. He’s also amazingly levelheaded in heated discussions (which is why I asked him to be a moderator many months ago).

Welcome Elemenope! I think you’re going to make UF even better.

(If not, well, Ty will be paying a little visit…)

    Welcome Elemenope.

    Wait a second, weren’t you already here? I thought we were just talking about Fight Club a minute ago. Anyway grats on the ‘contributor’ job. I’m sure your contributions will be awesome as always.

  • Elemenope

    Darn it. Now I have to be creative

    “(If not, well, Ty will be paying a little visit…)”

    Is this a hint that Ty is getting bumped up to the front page as well?

    • Ty

      I was invited over a year ago to the front page. I just don’t write anything worthy of it.

    Congrats Elemenope.

  • Daniel

    My first experience with Elemenope was very recently. A debate started in the comments, and while most of my dissenters were at best rude, and at worst hateful, Elemenope was extraordinarily kind, and made a well thought out, intelligent argument that made me change my opinion regarding the issue.

    I very much look forward to his contributions!=)

    Looking forward to the same level of excellence in contributions that we see in comments. Well done El.

    is there pie?

  • John C

    He asked me first Elemeno, I had to turn him down unfortunately, some trivial differences surfaced in our negotiations, something about having to stay on topic, no evangelizing and my being a lover of God, other than that I was ‘this close’ to accepting Daniels’ offer. I mean you were only chosen because I opted out you understand, just to keep you humble my friend. Yea, you owe me one, that’s ok, its better to give than to receive.

    Let’s make it official: I John C do hereby concede and bequeath my appointment as esteemed UF contributor and bestow its full office, jurisdiction and duties upon one Elemeno…P.

    There, its official, may the farce be with you.

    Congratulations, Elemenope. Since you are so clear-headed that I am pretty sure you’re a robot, I salute you with a tall glass of alcohol, robot fuel of the future.
