  •  Oh for fuck's sake. You people can barely write (0+ / 0-)

    your own names.

    •  We can't actually. We use noms de plume (3+ / 0-)

      Sometimes, I lift my leg and just mark it that way.  I can tell you, people hate having to hang paper up afterwards to let it dry, but the scent hangs around for awhile and everyone knows whose it is.  So why bother learning to write one's name, I ask?

      Now that I keep seeing your name though, I've got John Denver's song running through my head over and over.  Which isn't such a bad thing - it's probably my second favorite of his behind "Rocky Mountain High."

      Keep up the good work and the good fight!  I perused some of your work and applaud it (I am not being snarky - I appreciate your efforts in the state).

      •  Thank you. Being patronized by someone who (0+ / 0-)

        uses the word "snarky" as though it has anything other than broadly connotative, highly political, Internet user-group use is really impressive.

        And what I mean by the pseudo-invention of the (really ugly) word "snarky" falls along the lines of what Orwell meant in Politics and the English Language.

      Time to let up. This could be a really sensitive time for this person.

      Beware the lollipop of mediocrity: lick it once and suck forever.

      •  How "snarky" of you: What I'm asking (0+ / 0-)

        (among other things) is what sensibility is it, really, that's being limned by this word/concept "snarky," and I'm also asking, why is it that any deviation from party-line orthodoxy here from One Who Is Not To Be Questioned or Defied Such as He/She/"Hunter" Who Wrote This Thread is met with such herdlike group-think opposition?

        All I said in the beginning was that this thread was prolix, and would have been better if less wordy.

        Wow. I kinda think a lotta suck-ups here are far more sensitive than they oughtta be...No?
