Here is my very modest contribution to the quiz:
2. Ramses Emerson ( there was a detective of that name in Sleuth, what happened to him?)
5. Serges, Biggie, myself... Not you, Squirrel, you're the king of the AV captors.
8. Because it's interesting, intelligent and funny and I like (most of) the community. Do I have to obey and paste it in the "Why do I love Sleuth?"
10. Eagle Eye Flo, I can't remember the others
