Well, I think musick himself has claimed he's not really an adult...[running for cover, ducking, EGing all the way]

On Sat. night, between the hours of 7 and 8pm (the after dinner - relax and hang with my cat time), the boob-tube (comedy) choices are: 'reality' shows, "Stooge Fest" and BBC-Keeping Up Appearances/Vicar of Dibley.
I rest my *case.

Isn't YART an acronym for "Yet Another Rehashed Topic?" And doesn't using an acronym imply all of it's original meaning and inflection? I find both the phrase and its attendant acronym sarcastic and dismissive. Rude? Maybe not intentionally. Am I being overly sensitive? Ummm... maybe. But then I avoid using ASAP in written correspondence in favor of "as soon as convenient."
Now I need a damned winkie emoticon to show I'm not being too terribly "bloody-minded."

Doug, put the word wink in these brackets: [ ]. I'll use the word blink (otherwise, it would just become the emoticon): [blink].
Quick lesson: for colors, you do the same thing, but you have to add the step of ending them, and you do that with a slash:  /. I'll use brown, because it won't actually change the color of the text you want changed.
You just put [brown]the text you want changed[/brown] and finish your sentence.
You start and stop italics (put i and /i in the brackets) and bolding (put b and /b) the same way. But do check yourself; if you put [wink[, for ex., it won't work; and if you forget to end it, then your text will be color-changed or italicized, etc., to the end of whatever you've written.

The YART word did/does translate to "yet another rehashed topic" and although the connotations way back when may have been that the YARTer shouldn't have YARTed, I think it's been a long, long time - at least 18 months - since that was the case. I haven't hesitated to either YART or to call a YART because it simply means that it's been discussed before. Since the search engine on this site is less than perfect and too damned literal for its - or anyone else's - good, YARTs are inevitable. And desirable, because quite often it's fun to go over something again.
In as much as this word-based site hasn't generated that many neologisms, surely one FLA is not one two many?
