I believe you have mine...
Bringing you quality product in the face of crushing indifference since 1970.
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the place
Not a user was stirring, not even McMysteryface;
The threads were all hung, on the page near the top,
Three words at a time story, and one about a pepper crop;

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While replies about Star Wars composed in their heads;
And mamma with her tablet, and I with my mac,
Had just settled down with a burrito for snack.

When out in the forum there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the table to see what was the matter.
Away to the keyboard I flew in a blink,

More rapid than eagles the answers they came,
And the thumbs they got added, each one by name;

Then, Wendell! with wysire! then, HiveGod and mrbeankc!
To the top of the forum! to the top of the thread!
Now click away! click away! click away all!

As old-threads from the past, down the page fall,

So up at the top, the thread stays for a day,
Until another post on “What did you have on YOUR toast today.”

And then, in a twinkling, the thread falls away
When some spam from a bot has started a fray.
As I drew my mouse closer, and scrolled with my hand,
I came up with another possible name for a band.

I shut down my browser, and smiled at the scene,
Remembering how good Chit Chat was in 2017
And I said to myself, as the screen folded out of sight,
