I was very surprised to see the WFD threads were so popular over the entire platform! It’s like a big kitchen island that everyone gathers around to kibbitz while enjoying food and drink that others are making…

Thanks. So many threads I will go back to.

As someone who loves data, this is an awesome post. Thank you @system.

I chuckled when I saw that 4 out of 5 of the top folks who gave out “likes” were from Greater Boston (including me). I guess we are friendlier than our reputation that precedes us.

Also, if I devoted as much time to my professional life as I do to this lovely place, I might be CEO by now.
