My favorite is PG's request to limit the fluff and get back to technical discussions like posts about the "Innards of Erlang": https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=512145

Which lead to the famous "Erlang Day", making the HN homepage look like this: https://www.flickr.com/photos/stilist/3348380060/in/photostr...

Interestingly, this day is what personally introduced me to Erlang, and it's been my primary programming language since.

Brilliant! First good laugh I've had today - thanks for sharing :D

Is pg still active on HN? I can't remember seeing any comments by him in the past year or so...

PG doesn't appear to be active any longer (https://news.ycombinator.com/threads?id=pg). Looks like 2 comments in the last 2 years (and last post is almost a year ago).
