You seem to keep asking for feedback... here goes.
it is my best:
That was one of the
best posts I've read and in fact proves that the internet is not at total waste of time
. You even helped put Erick's comments into a context that brings out a deeper meaning in them. Very nicely done.
And you are very precise in identifying the most important point: Dan has made a very generous offer to meet personally with Erick and show him directly what IT really is. And he doesn't have to go to Boston to get it!
