Dysfunction. He's really helpful and he gets around a lot to help lots of people. Always has the right answer. (by the way, what does M-F with the heart after it mean? Does it mean they've already been a MOTM?)

The M-F w/ heart badge means "premium member". MOTMs get a premium membership as part of the award.

Not to belittle Eric559's accomplishments, he truly is an outstanding member here and deserving previous MoTM, but that's a completely worthless reason to nominate someone.

Please keep your nominations and their reasons to things that actually are real reasons to nominate someone, I'd prefer this not to become a thread where people are nominated for completely pointless reasons.
