Message the all the LOCK Thread Participants

Hey guys.

This new blog option gave me an idea on how we can use it to help out the efficiency of the LOCK Thread.  I know many or most of you have me in your Favorites.  Well, whenever I post a blog submission, I believe it shows up on your Profile page under the 'Favorite Blogs" sections.

So, I figure I will put up Standings, CONSENSUS plays, and any other important info on the LOCK Thread as well as making it a blog post.  This way, you can always check from your own Profile page to see if there is any important LOCK Thread information that you might miss in the 20+ pages of posts.  This will also making it OK to post chit-chat or whatever on the LOCK Thread because the really important stuff can be found in my blog posts, and then on your Profile page.

Does this make sense to everybody?  I can use the blog system as a "Bat Signal" to all the LOCK guys, and you can then find the important info from your own Profile page.

When you guys get this and read it, can you reply by posting a "Comment" at the bottom of this blog submission?  I'd like to see how many people this post "hits" and how quickly you guys see it.

Thanks and good luck to all,
