    Hullo, tanka pro, thank you for supporting my tanka contest. Congratulations! Your tanka is better than the placement might suggest .... I sort of got into this mood while evaluating, and looked for less pared-down syllable counts after having already previously accepted a few pared-down counts as placements.
