why post to me at all if all you are going to get as a response is the usual "G".
Some of us decided this was unnecessarily hard work a long time ago.
Oh BerrySteph, as Marid would say in an Effinger novel, "You so right".
I didn't even know that he was one to ignore, and not argue with. Thought that there was something there that had a sense of meaning and compassion, but I was deluded, again.
So why are you still posting unrequested posts still -- slow learning curve I guess.
G=G+1 not confused, in this case both apply. call it whatever you like junk mail either way.
That was a very, very long explanation.
No ad hominem responses. That's pretty much all I could take from it, sorry.
That's on my start page as a rule, anyway.
On that we agree.
But I once got a G=G+1 for teasing you about a post that contained atrocious spelling. I mean REALLY bad, not just the odd word, but almost every one.
So, sometimes your macro can be a tad sensitive to what it perceives as an "ad hom" (i.e.: attack the argument, not the person), and the G=G+1 response ends up turning light banter into insult, where none was intended.
If you object to the criteria I use, why be a passive-aggressive coward
Attack the argument, not the person. No ad homs, please.
I get the bad spelling comment often. No, excuse, but several reasons. First I don´t care, type stream of conscious, and don´t bother to edit. Secondly as a very fast touch typist, who neither looks at the keys, nor the CRT (poor eye sight and focus result of a stroke), Third point is because I often work in several languages, my typing often reflects a different language (constitució) or phonetic (two, too, to). I have no problema with legit complaints when my errors interfere with the message of my post. However do object when my message is obvious, and the spelling-grammar complaint are merely a way for the respondent to negate the message, or avoid responding.
Not valid, my ad hom was a response to and ad hom, e.g. valid.
