We have made many friends on this site during our adventure to measure ourselves against the best players on Gameknot. We also received some less than complimentary comments and some "sledging" - an English/Australian cricketing "technical" term - due to the somewhat unexpected success we have enjoyed. We take this in the very best of English spirit, and totally respect the right of free speech. However, as soon as we decided to share some of the best "choice" comments we received and posted them here on this page, for your edification, delight and enjoyment . . . the flow of sledging dried to a trickle . . . and then went away.
