LOL! See sweetie, I told you you were coming on too strong...you gotta ease up a bit if you want the feminine side to come out more :-)

For the record though I agree with what you said and would just like to add that I'd love to see these "reporters" do followups on many of the stories that get posted here. We hear about the initial event and then nothing, like the story falls off some kind of reporting cliff, never to be heard from again.
