    Jeez...is anyone keeping a list of how many people assimilated?

    I think one of the interview questions must now be: "Are you prepared to moderate The Coffehouse for us?" Wink

    But seriously, congratulations Maurits!

    I don't like using the word "softie" due to other connotations, as readers of The Beano will be aware of Smiley
