From a fellow AOLer:
I have to be honest with you, which I know you’ll appreciate. When you first came aboard, I was pretty uncertain of you. Your demeanor and manner of speaking didn’t seem as though they’d mesh well at AOL.
But as time has gone by, and I’ve followed your blog, and your messages to the lists, and your actions, I think you’re exactly what AOL has needed for a long time. I am impressed and inspired by your vision, your energy, and your boldness; your willingness to say and do whatever you feel needs to be said or done. I may not always agree with what you say, but I’m glad you say it just the same.
You’ve got brass balls, my friend, and I am glad you’re here. Please keep it up.
