Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the success of The Big Picture: The thoughtful commentors, the Think Tank Authors, the designers who made the site look good, our programmers who made it slick, the reviews that told people about the place, and FM for putting the ads here that pays for the whole thing.
And, it took just 7 years to become an overnight sensation.
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
