I can tell you weren't genuine in your offer.
Very, very clever.
Sorry at every mention of the word invite I brace myself from a drooling spitting drag out argument about our sister forum, thus I didn't catch the reference. Also I'm an idiot.
The text of that post was cut and pasted from Mat Hall's blog verbatim. The link in the OP goes to his blog. I couldn't figure out permalinks there. See above, I'm an idiot. You could comment on his blog or at blah or alternatively leave an enticing thread title here. (luckily there is a feed that lets blah folks read cot thread titles. had you heard?).
Incidentally, if I had invites to hand out, spelling my name backwards would certainly qualify you.
