e·lite or é·lite
n. pl. elite or e·lites
1. The best or most skilled members of a group: the football team's elite.
We think of the people we mentioned as the best of LJ. The popular ones. The users everyone knows and loves. NOT the people who think they're better than everyone. We're very sorry to the people we mentioned that thought we meant it in a bad way. We most certainly did not. So, our bad.
Note from Karrie/myst56: Again, sorry if we offended anyone. We call you elites because we admire you a lot and think of you as really awesome superiors, not those who think they're better than everyone else. Forgive us, please!♥
