Now I'm worried that they think I'm just trying to be a "Mini-vee" and its got my game rattling in my head.  You've indirectly given me the yips.

  4. Thanks for this – did NOT know about the leading period. Cool. Protips would be great! Also if TW could convert URLs to plain text (if I were running things.) ha thankful daily for Gary V!
