No problem.  Thanks for all the awesome work you're doing.

That's fine; I was just referring to the edits of my answers.

That's because it was edited, and was part of the reason I thought it
was worth bringing up (the other main reason being the broken link
elsewhere).  I believe the original answer I submitted does make
sense.  The question was "In what ways do you contribute to *GNOME*?"
(stars added for emphasis).  I answered with "I contribute to
*Gnome*..." (with the link to explain why I spelled it differently). 
You could change the "cough" stuff to bold or italics since you won't
be printing the article in plaintext and it has the same meaning.

Thanks for putting up with my nitpicking.  :-)
