Dear Archie: Since the old timers are so lacking in courtesy to a newcomer, I will send you a private message giving a URL about "full monty".

I suppose he could be a newcomer -- although there are three(3!) widely dispersed (and more accessible) threads *labeled "full monty", whereas this one is "animal adjectives".... but hey, I'm just a cynical old curmudgeon.

Since archie joined us two days ago, and this was his first post, he can fairly be described as a newcomer.

And accordingly entitled to courtesy, which he did not get.

Dear Dr Bill:

Be assured that if I thought he was a newcomer, I would have greeted Archie with a big welcome. But, I subscribe to the belief that one of the established jokers on the board (Maaaavvv????) has created an alternate identity for the sole purpose of poking fun at the multiple Full Monty threads. It is a funny joke, but one which needed to be called.

Dear Sparteye: You may be quite correct. However it seems a bit infra dig to register a phony name for the purpose of having a corny joke. That could lead to nastiness in the wrong hands, such as addressing insulting remarks to other board members from behind a false front.

thank you for the welcome, doc. i am sure the others don't mean to be nasty, they can't help it

maverick, why do you use so many little silly faces, those yellow things? do you think know one will understand you or something.
