Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Basically the staff are in two cathegories (though overlapping) Frontpagers (FP) and gnomes (who twinks the computer thingy from time to time). The FPs are found on the frontpage in the right column under 'Blogroll' (which might not be the most intuitive place to find it) and their email adresses are generally found in their signatoures.

Otherwise you can always write your trial balloon into a diary about what you wanted to ask and see how it pans out. Usually works fine for most communication, plus (if you consider it a plus) you get input from more people.

Danka. (That's German)

I thought it was Danke...

Thanks Swede.  I tend to be a cautious person ... no need to stir the pot when you don't have to.  After I posted my question about "who runs this joint, anyway" I went to do "other stuff" and came back a few hours later to find this huge fucking .... is the proper term "thread" .... trailing after my posting.  I started reading some of the replies and I thought, "What the fuck?".  I post what was suppose to be an innocuous question about who is in charge and it generates .... THIS.  As we used to say as kids, "Man 0 Maneschewitz"  (wine name is probably misspelled)  Anyway, holy shit, I've got to be careful what I type around here.  God knows what would be the response if I farted.  The torrent of bits and bytes would melt my CPU.  So now, looking at the text my "innocent" question produced, I am DEFINITELY going to blow my idea by the powers-that-be, and LET them be as conservative and critical as possible.  

To quote Danny Glover in the Lethal Weapon series,
"I'm too OLD for this shit!"

Anyway, thankie thankie for the help.  I've got a ton more questions to ask "someone"  but I want to get to the rest of the replies down below.

And yes, I know, the proper spelling is danke.  I took 4 years of high school German eons ago and I still retain some of it.  I suffer from a "mental disorder".  Don't ask the source ... long story.  Suffice it to say that I suffer from this delusion that I can say (type) funny things, people will think that I am amusing, and they will like me.  "Hey look, Twank said danka (the idiot).  Why don't we invite him to the party." I've got my HA - HA side and I've got my dead serious side; very little in between.  Can you guess that I live alone and why?  

In the words of the immortal artist Art Ahr  (I wonder how old Art is doing?)

In the United States, we say "good bye";

in Italy, it's "Asta la pizza";

and in Germany, it's "Auf Wienerschnitzel"

Ciao y'all and once again, thank you!

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.

Come on! Stop beating around the bush. If you have a diary, just post it. The worst thing that could happen to it is not being commented.

Do you always need a boss to tell you what to do?
