hi matt

okay, that's enough, a little flattery is nice but let's not get carried
away, eh?

i did mention a UNION as the best way to simplify things

the first query grabs the author, the second query grabs the DISTINCT
commenters, and UNION  (note: not UNION ALL) takes care of removing the
doubles where the author is also a commenter

yes, i did

a buddy from the WD list here in toronto joined us in our weekly game of
frisbee golf -- he got a hole in one on 11, but i beat him by six strokes,
i was nine under for the back nine   =o)
