Right. I'm just going to add that, even though you probably didn't read the opening post, not liking someone (for instance dan, but it can be anyone) is perfectly fine. So what if someone doesn't like someone you do like, does that mean you can just be a jerk to the guy? no. He has the right to say he doesn't like danp (even though his post clearly says otherwise) and if you want everyone who doesn't agree with your opinion to shut up and leave, well maybe you should be the one leaving because such behaviour is not endorsed on this forum. Everyone's allowed to speak their mind here as long as they're following our rules, so don't be a jerk just because you don't agree with them.
Now back on topic.
Just to clarify, Percyman has it backwards. My post was the sincere part, the tags were the joke. Dan IS a really cool guy for communicating with his fanbase the way that he does. I've really never seen it too much (though, I have seen it, rarely) on forums like this, and I find it to be a really admirable trait in someone that's in Dan's position.
