“You mustn’t ever touch this bowtie. You mustn’t ever remove this bowtie that I wear underneath my chin, the bowtie that rests against the softness of my warm throat. If that bowtie were to come off — oh, children, how sorry you would be then. How sorry, and how pitiful, and how remorseful, and how useless would be your remorse.”

Merry Christmas From Chris Kimball

"Hi. We wrote something and then deliberately pooped on it. You can kind of see what it was before the poop got put on it. Sure, if you take a survey, we’ll wipe the poop off and show it to you. If you don’t feel like taking a survey, just dismiss the popup window, read the two poopless sentences, then treat yourself to half a dozen ads. You’re welcome.”

“It’s harder to be civil on the Internet than in real life, and we encounter far more trolls and blithering idiots there. And that’s exactly why we should be civil and constructive. If we can be civil here, we can be civil anywhere. If we can handle someone arguing about our semicolons on Reddit, we can handle someone making a constructive suggestion about software architecture in the office.”

Raganwald is civil so we are civil
