    Barny BTW if anyone sends me a PM I reserve the right to post it as my status or otherwise make it public, if I so choose. And/or if I think said PM, or a post on my wall, is bullying, I will report the content. I understand that if I post on anyone's wall or send a PM the recipient may do the same. Would like that to be clear. Not expecting a lot of PMs ;-o

      Barny Actually that's a really really good idea, BellaM - thanks! Off to check the terms about offensive language.

      BellaM In every other forum of which I am a member, making public the contents of a private message without consent is a Terms of Service violation resulting in an instant ban. I have no intention of sending you any kind of PM but I will be reading the TOS.

      Barny Look at what AlanP sent me, that seems pretty much like a service violation itself.

      Barny And that was from me making an constructive suggestion - in a group that is supposedly "collegiate" and "mutually respectful". Maybe, as long as Alan doesn't want to create an argument.

    Barny As AlanP said to me in a PM: "I'm putting this in a private message for a reason. Take your self justifying shit out of my fucking group, let it go and grow up." Yes. Grow up.

    Thank you, jk, you are very kind. Your Narrowing World title gives the right claustrophobic feel to your little tale. I broke an ankle a few years back and it's surprisingly debilitating when the rest of you feels perfectly fine. Made me better ...

    A happy ending, via tragedy - congratulations on your deserved publishing success, and commiserations for your sad loss. Ian.

    Yes, "Sir/Madam" might be more appropriate in an attempt to pacify, or "aargh" as "they" take a bite. Wikipedia says "The distinction between sex and gender differentiates sex (the anatomy of an individual's reproductive system, and secondary sex ...

    Your comp entry exercised the old chuckle muscles, Barny. Loved it.

    Great comp entry, Barny. Seems like the only luck your m/c has is bad luck or none at all. Loved the humour.

    Boo!

    I prefer the mystery of it. Much more interesting than just being a forum sub-group. Meet every month, secret handshakes, left-trouser leg rolled up, plotting sinister acts in the depths of written code.

    You need to market this better!
