Thank you. Very helpful, Faldage. I will take that as the "first move" in restoring courtesy and civility to our exchanges.

P.S. I hope we are not going to duel to find out who is the most incorrigible "omegatist". 'Cause it's me, of course.

....and who's running the show

What, you don't all just perform for me?

we all part of the 'cast' and we're all running the show...
some day are great, others are so so.. but once you begin to post here, you're part... you make the play your own. its different, and reflects you, and your input, even if you just post a smiley!

you certainly seem bright enough, and fast enough on your feet (or is it fingertips?) to entertain and be entertaining.

we really are nice people... and i think you are too, i am just surprized again and again, (but then i have trouble with 'tone',too) that posts i see as fun, are seen differently by you. (and both our views/interpertations are valid!)

What is seen as "humorous" is often just a matter of perspective, de Troy, as you know. Depends on whether you are on the inside looking out, or on the outside looking in.

But I like your attitude. And it certainly would be great if AWADtalk is, or could become, the type of place you believe it is.

I offered no offence to anyone until offence was offered to me.

Those who occupy a position of influence should be more, not less, careful about disparaging 'humor' than outsiders like myself, I think, because they have a built-in cheering section.

In deference to your exemplary diplomacy, I cede the last post to you, de Troy. [Just kidding.]

Why am I not surprised at this response, Faldage?

Keep stirring it up. You might just wear me out. And, in the process, prove that you are more of an omegatist than I am.

OK, since I saw the views at this post totaled 666, I just had to add this...

*****************************

But I do know when I have been slammed...

It's quite clear that you don't, since you haven't been... but, then again, you're, of course, welcome to define 'slammed' anyway you'd like, as long as you acknowledge others' comfortableness with defining it as they do... (please don't ask what that is ).

That's what this is really all about, de Troy.

For you *this may be the case, but the only evidence (oh my God , what did I just say ) to this lies in how frequent a single person posts... and then the person who is "running the show" in that respect is our dear Dr.Bill (aka. wwh)... not that there's anything (at all) wrong with that...

Depends on whether you are on the inside looking out, or on the outside looking in.

As you've said (and we all agree) this is a public forum... this ain't the 'bourgeoisie -vs- the proletariat'.

But I like your attitude. And it certainly would be great if AWADtalk is, or could become, the type of place you believe it is.

There's no place like home.... there's no place like home... there's no place like home... ...

I offered no offence to anyone until offence was offered to me.

I think I've been insulted. I offered you offence but you didn't take it. Not good enough, I guess. Hey, Faldage, I think he likes you...[giggle]

Those who occupy a position of influence (Now I know you're not talking about Faldage!) should be more, not less, careful about disparaging 'humor' than outsiders like myself, I think, because they have a built-in cheering section.

GO, Moss, GO! Go, Moss, GO! Go, Moss, GO!
Gimme an M... Gimme an O... Gimme an S... Gimme another S. What's it spell?!?
GooooooOOOOOOOO MOSS!

In deference to your exemplary diplomacy (call it what you want), I cede the last post to you, de Troy. [Just kidding.] I knew that.
