That'd be too funny if we got all worked up over nothing.
In any case, I'll get my last word in here after the fact--kudos and thanks go to all in this thread, proving their ability to be far saner, more human, and generally more fun than the cynical, supercilious members of certain other sites I frequent. Ahem...jwfan... Anyway, may this thread continue for another 2000 posts.
You guys are great. I have no doubt there will something like a "Thread Two," simply because interest in the Mansion is so high. It will be a little less intense, less thickly-packed, perhaps, and my own contributions will be less frequent, but...people just can't shut up about this ride! And also, the "comments" section at GRD's blog seems to me to be underutilized as a potential discussion forum for Mansionites.
