I got in!!! Remember that link to Quintessentially a few weeks back? Well, after countless hours of anxious waiting, I finally received my acceptance letter (the complete text of which is inside). At last, I can enjoy the finer things in life - it'll only cost me $600 a year .

I'm tempted to raise the money for membership - it might be interesting to muck around with things from the inside . . . perhaps we could create a MetaFilter account that all of us could use to 'cause problems'.

Not for nothing, Aladfar, but are you sure you want to be showing off that userid and password around like that? You've my congradulations, but I'd make a request to have the letter removed or altered.

Hmm.. better be carefull. the login/pass works, displays all the info, I didn't do anything, it asks to submit application.

What's the big freaking deal? So it is a members-only store or am I missing something?

Um, the information presented when you type in the username and password is entirely false - do with it what you will.

Don't think for a second that I'd give out any personal information to all you MeFi folks - the last thing I need is for strangers going through my trash . . .

Dear Esquire Gershwin...


And also bollocks, since Esquire has never been used as a title in that manner. (The form is: Joe Bloggs, Esq.)
