Actually I have also thought a lot about that subject, and I think as much as GG liked to have control of things, I also think that he loved to get immediate responses. I think he would've loved internet chat, not only because of the immediate responses, but also because of the anonymity it provides. Perhaps. It is so hard trying to put yourself in Glenn's shoes.
