Dear Mr. Sploofus:

While I write this note (and I might add missing the White Sox game) I feel the sincere need to comment on this site. I started out looking for a web-site that would challenge me...found this one and it challenged me daily.

I was amazed at the chat about the price...the way I figure it, (unless my math is wrong and that is entirely possible) it is $4 per month here...which figures to be about $0.13 per day. I enjoy this more than my Diet Coke at $1.50 per day.

Next, I am still amazed at the amount of time and effort you put into this. The fact that I get my quizzes back when I have a dangling participle or misspelling, does not frustrate me in the least. I applaud your continuing dedication to proper English, and thank you for your corrections.

Lastly, your dedication to making sure that we are all just here for the fun and making these quizzes up ourselves is a reassurance that will keep me, personally, coming back for years. I love the fact that you ask me where I got the information on my quizzes and this reminds me that doing my own research is far more rewarding than using another person's.

You Got Me...Chick

Hear, hear, Chick!

Yep, this is a great site...and it's gotten a lot better, IMHO, since editing was put into place.

Keep up the good work, Sploofus!

Well said Chick:

The cost of Sploofus is peanuts compared to other websites that are half as challenging. If people are complaining about the cost, buy one less bottle of water per week.

As far as good grammar and punctuation are concerned, it seems very chic to acknowledge that you know how to use them but don't have to.

Well, in my opinion, if someone can help me learn something by correcting me ..... great.

Not sure what you mean by "As far as good grammar and punctuation are concerned, it seems very chic to acknowledge that you know how to use them but don't have to."....

Kinda lost there...

Amen, Chick. As I'd said in the thread I started (Heartfelt Gratitude...), I love seeing how many other people appreciate what the Sploofmeister does to keep this thing going. After all the suggestions, complaints, and just plain ol' griping, it's nice to know that there are still some people who don't take this site for granted. Well spoken. Bravo!

TTFN, Diane

I couldn't have said it better! Thanks for that great post!

Chick, he's probably referring to the infamous "Punctuation" thread (may it rest in pieces, as it should), not anything you said.

As for your comment, Ehodgson, I completely agree. I don't know where this idea of it being chic comes from, but there it is nonetheless. I'll take all the help I can get. However, we probably don't want to start another punctuation thread!

Again, well said Chick.

Well said Chick, I second that!
