Default Open letter to Bob

By common consent, you are the most knowledgable
guy (present compny excepted of course) around here.

Why the **** do you have to persist in ramming it down our throats?

If the defendant be allowed a witness, said witness requests that the plaintiff take a gander about the non-GIMPS forums, where this witness has found the defendant to be quite helpful AND nice. (Though in the GIMPS area, for some reason, he does worse.)

Look at the bright side, Bob is pretty good at naming PITB's.

He has a flair for telling people to buckle down with the books and learn how to add 2+2.

Nothing is better than when the quack of the month walks in off the street with their 'proof' of some unsolved problem. As soon as I see the thread I wait with baited breath for Bob's response. It never disappoints.

Are you referring to the portion of mersenneforum.org that is not in the section titled "Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search", or are you referring to forums outside mersenneforum.org?

Just curious, how do you keep the hook from painfully snagging your tongue when you bait your breath? And the worm from sliding down your gullet?

(Or did you perhaps mean 'bated', o Master Baiter? Eye dew sow love pouring over context-free spellcheck fubars such as the above won.)
