    Hyperbole. As a means of demonstration. Obviously joelgp did not say that. I am not implying he said that. I am making a joke, because I don't want to hurt his feelings, and constructive criticism couched in terms of a joke is often more acceptable.

    All I am saying is, perhaps in diaries about human death and suffering, a more appropriate and adult tone would work better than "Oh Smack!!!"

    And that really is a quote, triple exclamation points and all.

      and here's the point.

      How would people react to a diary that said "Oh Smack! Taliban kills 10 US soldiers?"
