Quoting Wocca

If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?

The problem with some of these threads is that there is too much cross-referencing with other threads. This creates confusion to anyone reading one particular thing in isolation. Not all topics would interest everyone, so a "holistic" approach can tend to create a clique ... a small group of people, often with shared interests, who associate closely and exclude others from their group.

I'm sure this is quite unintentional. Sometimes, there are replies made too quickly, without adequate consideration beforehand. Hence the appeal for an "EDIT" button for users. Some replies give the appearance of merely being attempts to pick up a "loose" thread, and run around in circles with it.

Now that those involved have all clocked up quite a credible number of postings, perhaps quality can be considered

BTW Sarcasm is said to be the lowest form of WIT .

Yes, it is...we have been quite inconsiderate in that regard . Now that all bets are off, we will try to stick to the issue at hand. Could you post 20 more topics so we can start fresh?

Thought it would be over-looked in here so made it a thread?

BTW: Even mild pomposity is pomposity just the same.

Wocca, this one I will apologize for... At least the BTW. You reply in the other thread had not come up on my screen at the time I posted this.
