let's just say that their parameters were broad.

Giving new meaning to the line from South Pacific: She is broad where a broad should be broad.

I'll tell ye, I'm shaken in me fur writen this, afraid that someone will give out ta poor Ted fer posten in the wrong section. Anyways, as me manners always come furst, and as a Member I have ta show a good example ta them journeymen, I felt that I just had ta thank everyone fer their good wishes on me becomin a member.

Thank ye all very much and fer yer wishes. And fer them what do be questionen me intillict - just remember that intelligince is nothin more than a state of mind.

Be seein ya

Ted

You will allow us a little hesitation. We are not really used to having teddy bears in our midst and we were so concerned about you after the Goldilocks fiasco that we failed to point out that really I&E isn't the place. I think that Miscellany would be good and you are quite right to suggest that you seek out another location for your thoughts, however fascinating.

Delightful to hear from you.

Kind regards

Jo

OK o'Gallant one, here it is. Denounce all the misinformation you want, just make sure you get *right, cuz if you don't it may very well *have to be moved to Miscellany, or worse yet, Wordplay and Fun.

...some of our* problems

I see you're using the *preferred method of asterisking. They way I use it is: at the beginning of a word to note the meaning is subject to another whole discussion (possibly one that has already taken place) - or - the meaning of the word is *clearly understood by yours truly differently than most of the rest of the planet.

I hope that bit of *information helps your 'membership' grow. I'll reserve *defining the various types and usages of quotation marks for someone, no, anyone else!

Hey Juan, didja notice how he spelt 'looselee'?

I feel it's me duty as a Member ta have ta pick ye up on a few pints.

Furstly, me use of the word "loosy" was a genwine typen error and should have read "loosly". I think ye might be getten a biteen pendantic - worser than a milestone around me neck.

Second, I used the asterick as a foot note - ta clarify me use of the word "our" - just in case the AWAD pleece might think that I was taken liberties, although I'm quite sure that it's a Members privlige ta feel included and ta fret over the welfare of this forem.

Ya know, the responsibility of been a Member is beginnin ta effect me nerves. Is there any way ya can re-apply ta become a journeyman again?

Be seein ya

GallantTed
