This thread is initiated at the suggestion of CabbageDad, who observed that many individual posts are "golden" even if the lengthy threads they are part of are not particularly memorable.
Here's how it will work. This thread will always appear to be closed--but that's only to control what gets posted.
If you want to nominate an individual post as golden, please send me a private dialog explaining why. I will consider the post on its own merits, look at how many likes or supportive responses it prompted and make my best guess as to how well it will age if it appears on its own.
If I agree, I'll copy it into a post for this thread and provide a link to the original thread. If it seems appropriate, I may include a small comment explaining the context or why it was nominated for "golden" status.
Thanks for the suggestion, CabbageDad.
