The Morning After: Did everyone make it alive?

This pile of bison skulls represents visually the approximate number of comments we had last night.

Well, last night was quite fun.  In fact, I commented so much that my husband got jealous and forbade me to comment past 8pm.  I had to appease him to be able to write today's FTB.  I think he would have felt better had I let him continue making comments under my name, but, well, there's only so much I can allow to be said in my name.  "Leafs sucks" was too far. 

Anyways, PPP will have a summary post about last night's festivities later this morning, but by all accounts it was highly successful.  Aside from the accidental banning of a few members that SBN decided were spam bots.  Hopefully, no computers exploded, and the SBN servers didn't fry. 

Good job doing some good for the world, Leaf fans (and respectful guests).
