Hi, Richard,

Are you inventing these anonymous contributors to your blog? If so, I assume that you will be happy to receive a comment or a poem from a real person:

RHE kindly aerates QED
He hauls up posts from 1863,
waves his pedantic logisticus around,
And Great Ideas spring from every frond -
Shame he only appeals to frisky goats.

Kind regards,
