I can't express how grateful I am for you guys. I don't know what people intended in the harsh criticisms they posted, but the repercussions have been overwhelmingly positive and have made my week that much brighter.
So, I looked browsed through my 1000+ answers and found a notable 28.

Anyways, thanks again for your support. It's been a crazy year and a half since I've become an official part of this community, and although it's had its ups and downs, I've enjoyed the ride.
