Boilermakings Is Appealing For Calm

So I saw yesterday that one reader decided to go after Myles for his stance on Patrick Bade's recent shenanigans. Let's all calm down, people. I feel Myles did an excellent job in saying what we were all thinking: namely that Patrick was being a royal dumbass. Myles didn't go over the top and he is being a wonderful new voice at the site in addition to Steve. The main reason they are here is because you readers have made this site so popular that I can't possibly do it by myself anymore. It has honestly been nice to step back for a few days and rest this summer.

So keep on doing what you're doing, guys. The month of June had over 250,000 page views and it was the slowest month of the past 12, but before that it would have been damn near a record high.

Meanwhile, here are some links to start the week:
