Merry Christmas, mathowie.

I am sure I am not the only one who would like to sincerely wish our host the best of the festive season and for the year to come. I have enjoyed greatly my short time here and look forward to much more. Thanks, kudos and congrats for the work you have done.

Yeah, why not? It's been a wonderful year for MetaFilter and many of us, no matter how corny it may seem, feel better if they just wish you well.

I suggest a "Wonderful Life" experiment where you shut down Metafilter for the holidays, while everyone reflects on what life would be like without Metafilter.

Or, perhaps, what Mefi would be without MH is what Clarence would show....someone.

stan chin, shut up! what if he does it?

Mathowie, I say this with the utmost sincerity: I wish that the nicest person I've never had the pleasure to meet have the many wishes he's ever had come to fruition. You deserve it.

I'd post a message here, but I'm pretty sure this thread is gonna get deleted, so I won't waste my time like I did on those other deleted threads.

Merry Christmas to Matt and Mrs Matt. Thanks for the good times.

I'd like to suggest that in this season of giving that we take the opportunity to make use of the "donate" link on the homepage. Nothing says Merry Christmas like 3000 "Xyz has sent you money" emails in your in-box.

Thanks for all the hard work, Matt.

I personally guarantee no elves will menace you this holiday season.

Unless you're into that.

The rest of you can all sod off. You've been nothing but a nuisance. And I mean that with all the love my little green heart can emit.

*brushing away a tear at this unusual display of sentimentality* Yeah, have a "Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Tip Top Tet, and a solemn and dignified Ramadan." [/Crusty the Clown]

Even you, quonsar! Bring on the rum and eggnog! And is that really Miguel under the mistletoe?

Oh, and I'm going to nip over the donation page right this minute. [footsteps receding]
