"I think I've been helpful nonetheless. Sometimes a level will stop until I come along and move it along."
this is an often overlooked point. there have been many times where i have seen a little slowdown, or stagnation; and then seen it jump to life when someone does something that irks a few players. (and, btw, i am not saying you do this SAZ, but the point is still valid.)
on an individual level, i have been witness to a couple times where i have seen (in person) someone get upset by a level enough to motivate them to pop open photoshop!
