    With appreciation to your thoughtful and sensitive navigation of the ship in the Monty Hall case. Mathematicians (of which I used to be one) aren't easy to communicate with, and mathematicians going mathematical and losing everyone else (as well as each other) was one of the key problems here. I think the pushback on some of your original proposals was sound, but regardless I deeply appreciated the combination of pragmatism, challenging questions where you perceived a real issue, and adaptability in the discussion on the proposed decision page, to get around the sticky points in #11 and reach a solution that works for (nearly) everyone.

    For dealing with User:J3mm0 in the decisive fashion you did. Sometimes the line between nasty but sane, and just pure crazy is very bright... Cerejota (talk) 07:44, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

    To a woman of character:

    "Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain but it takes character and self control to be understanding and forgiving."

    Thank you very much for your kindness and your understanding and simply being here on Wikipedia.
