    $\begingroup$ Yep, it is great that we have Lumo :-). Without him, many advanced questions would stay unanswered ... I congratulate and thank him for his contributions too :-) $\endgroup$ – Dilaton Jun 1 '13 at 14:31

    $\begingroup$ Common @ϚѓăʑɏβµԂԃϔ, dont be a party pooper ... :-P. The SE stuff and owners want jump down on as for having such a question to honor an exceptional member of our community on meta ;-). Take it easy, you are not the (SE) police, or are you ;-D? $\endgroup$ – Dilaton Jun 1 '13 at 14:36

    $\begingroup$ @Dilaton: Maybe, I'll get a gold tag-specialist badge within a few more years (not too far)... Would you honor me? C'mon, this shows something interesting to everyone. But, it's not an interesting topic to discuss ;-) $\endgroup$ – Waffle's Crazy Peanut Jun 1 '13 at 14:41

    $\begingroup$ @ϚѓăʑɏβµԂԃϔ yep, then you should be hohored too :-D, since things of interest and importance to our physics SE community should always be ok per decret. This thread is something nice nobody has to disagree and fight upon, it is just to celebrate so this is good. Cheers :-) $\endgroup$ – Dilaton Jun 1 '13 at 14:47

    $\begingroup$ I don't see any harm in praising Lubos for their accomplishments on the site here, @ϚѓăʑɏβµԂԃϔ. This is a milestone for the site... $\endgroup$ – Shog9 Jun 1 '13 at 16:24

    $\begingroup$ @Shog9: Agreed. But, can we create a tag specific-user and discuss around about a particular user..? For example, we did discuss about Ron Maimon (Err.. his suspension) and finally it got closed. I always think that metas are only for discussing about scope of main site, what are the allowables, observables, what do we accept/agree with, etc. Isn't that so? ;-) $\endgroup$ – Waffle's Crazy Peanut Jun 1 '13 at 16:30
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, probably not a great tag @ϚѓăʑɏβµԂԃϔ. I've replaced it. $\endgroup$ – Shog9 Jun 1 '13 at 17:09
  • $\begingroup$ congrats Lubos. $\endgroup$ – richard Jun 2 '13 at 5:05

    $\begingroup$ @Ϛѓăʑɏ βµԂԃϔ I was thinking, maybe we should have a "Maimongate" tag for when we want to discuss this issue. It will help future internet historians. $\endgroup$ – twistor59 Jun 2 '13 at 15:35

    $\begingroup$ @twistor59: Yeah... Of course. That tag with a tag-wiki excerpt to the You-know-who-related question (Hope someone would understand that) ;-) $\endgroup$ – Waffle's Crazy Peanut Jun 2 '13 at 15:40

    $\begingroup$ @twistor59 yep, I immediately thought we should create a memorial thread for another now unfortunately gone great contributer, who enlightend us with his brilliant answer and always higlighted the importance of unhinderend open discours and blatant honesty in science, too :-). Hi is still missed by many and it would at least help me to find some peace again and get over the bad circumstances of his departure a bit. $\endgroup$ – Dilaton Jun 2 '13 at 19:21

    $\begingroup$ But here is not the place for this, since this is Lumo's party thread :-).Cheers $\endgroup$ – Dilaton Jun 2 '13 at 19:35

    $\begingroup$ @Dilaton you must have noticed that Ron is still getting quite a number of points every month with his old answers. Also he does look in at the site practically every day. $\endgroup$ – anna v Jun 3 '13 at 5:50

    $\begingroup$ Which sourball had to downvote this celebration post, as even Shog9 said it is ok? $\endgroup$ – Dilaton Jun 4 '13 at 1:42

Thanks a lot for your warm and kind words, colleagues and e-pals. I hope that there will also be contributions in the future and many people will also be made happy and fewer people will be provoked by my (and other) answers!

And congratulations to quantum mechanics for having earned the gold badge – this sometimes underappreciated princess of the 20th century physics deserves it and it's really her achievement, too. ;-)
