dr. bill, if you look back, I think you'll find that helen's post is rather flatteringly duplicative of an earlier post in this thread, at
http://wordsmith.org/board/showthreaded.pl?Cat=&Board=beheadingwords&Number=37230
my apologies to you, dr. bill, for mis-noting its date

And surely my post is no more woundingly-phrased to helen than the many previous notations of YART seen on this board.

yes, he is of course right, dr bill.. but that's what he is a master at.. always being right, and aphonic (ie voiceless,(but not wordless,)) rants-- (to talk or say, in a loud extravagant way, declaim violently, to rave-- from old german word, who meaning was to affront,) is a rather an appropriate handle in some ways, don't you think?
as self proclaimed loud, extravagant, violent declaimer! (i merely comment, on the word the poster himself, has chosen to define himself)

and just at bad money drive out good in an economic system, bad attitudes drive out good ones.. and i admit to being angry and annoyed at cloying sweet remarks, when i percieve the rotting, vile decay behind them.

Helen, might your last be a bit excessive? Plenty of people have YARTed; plenty of times others have called them on it; and neither is any big deal. And I certainly wouldn't think you'd object to my phrasing being "sweet remarks" rather than sourpuss ones!

Given your history, Keiva-oh-pardon-me, A-R, I for one don't think she was being the least bit excessive.
