Bill Ford is everything the Fool stands for. He is helpful, kind, and patient. I remember when he arrived on HWTSC and I have watched his knowledge and skill grow continuously ever since that time. He doesn't get the recognition he deserves, partly because he is insufficiently controversial.

Bill is an excellent choice for the Feste.


BillF is a mensch. Set aside the knowledge and skill (which is hard in itself) and look at how he has been as a member of the TMF community and has added to that community. There's an inherent kindness in him that I feel is the essential nubbin of TMF and that is learning from those who know more and learning from those who delight in sharing what they know without any other desire than to share.

Controversy, more aptly described as contention, may create a volume of posts yet a clear answer that doesn't create disagreement is sometimes not recognized for what it is. Yet it is what TMF is: learning together so that an idea shared benefits all.

If you look at the short history of The Feste Award each winner has been a person who has given of themselves unstintingly because that's their way. BillF is that caliber.
