I'm not sure I've ever met anyone more capable of understanding that separation.




Agreed. And I'm sure he lives with it easily, too.

This is a board about words and language, not politics and religion. As before, I would be happy to direct you to boards about politics and religions, Milo.




And of course, Betsy, I would be more than happy to direct you to a place where you could be happy but you being happy would make me unhappy so I won't.

Dale, have you noted--this board is at wordsmith DOT org?

Anu needs some support to keep it going, (and has low key ads) but its largely a commercial free space.

we (oops, me, myself, i) like that.. so i (and a whole bunch of other people) tend not to post links to commerical sites (ok, so dictionaries sites are exceptions) if some one has an interest in something, (like say a rice cooker)
and someone else has a suggestion.. its likely to be done by PM--we--oops, there i go again being imperial!--don't often post links to stores, or suppliers, or other commercail sites.

Its not carved in stone (there are exceptions) but its sort of general rule.. (man oh man, i must be tired, we don't have no stinkin rules..)

well that the idea anyway.. (but being human, i am sure i have made a mistake or two... and posted something inappropriate once in a while.. and.. well..

Now Helen, you are being much too apologetic.
The only times I've ever noticed that you have posted something inappropriate are the times that you have haughtily presumed your right to use the imperial "I".

But in your case and to your credit you use the imperial "I" in the lower case and i think that that habit is most endearing.

I'm sure this is not a reflection on your esteem for the lovely AnnaS and is merely based on your knowledge that making her happy would contribute to making me happy, a consequence which I am sure would lead to your greater unhappiness.

It would make me happy if you were to disabuse me of this notion.

Make someone happy,
Make just one someone happy;
Make just one heart the heart you sing to.
One smile that cheers you,
One face that lights when it nears you,
One girl you're ev'rything to.

Fame if you win it,
Comes and goes in a minute.
Where's the real stuff in life to cling to?
Love is the answer,
Someone to love is the answer.
Once you've found her, build your world around her.

Make someone happy,
Make just one someone happy,
And you will be happy, too.

Ja, wer auch nur eine seele
sein nennt auf dem Erdenrund
und wer's nie gegkonnt der stellet
weinend sich aus diesem Bund

*******Yes I am aware of the dot. But why--did I address it wrong somewhere


Anu needs some support to keep it going, (and has low key ads) but its largely a commercial free space.


*******Forgive an old, un-hip non-geek, but is a commercial free space a space for free commercials or a space free of commercials; and to what space do you have reference, and in what way does this space relate to my followups; or in fact does it



we (oops, me, myself, i) like that.. so i (and a whole bunch of other people) tend not to post links to commercial sites (ok, so dictionaries sites are exceptions) if some one has an interest in something, (like say a rice cooker)
and someone else has a suggestion.. its likely to be done by PM--we--oops, there i go again being imperial!--don't often post links to stores, or suppliers, or other commercial sites.


*******It appears you're suggesting that somehow somewhere I must have made reference to a site having a commercial basis, and that you and Peter are suggesting that such comments be transmitted by PM. Where is this comment or link, and in what way does it seem commercial


********Is it in this thread or another--by chance, does it have to do with tapioca



Its not carved in stone (there are exceptions) but its sort of general rule.. (man oh man, i must be tired, we don't have no stinkin rules..)

well that the idea anyway.. (but being human, i am sure i have made a mistake or two... and posted something inappropriate once in a while.. and.. well..





*****I am sure that I too have made a mistake of some sort somewhere, and that all of this constitutes an effort to call it to my attention. If so and I said something inappropriate I apologize profusely but I hope you will satisfy my abysmal ignorance, as demonstrated above, in order that I may not repeat the transgression
