I'm happy to have Five For Friday back. I will, however, be that much more likely to delete an entry if when I read it I feel it doesn't answer the question directly or if it's formatted in a difficult way. The former constraint is necessary to keep people from making more and more self-indulgent "riffs" on the questions; the latter is necessary to keep my sanity. No personal acrimony on my part is ever intended: I just delete and move on. I have even less time and energy for arguing about it, so unless some obvious, actual injustice was done I'll delete your e-mail, block your address and get back to work. I appreciate everyone's participation and patience.
