Thanks, my dear Nancy,

for your patronizing and matronly call to order ;-).

But isn't it amazing that nobody else has taken offense from such asinine
unloading?  Isn't this supposed to be a list concerned with SPEECH, to
purify the language of the tribe, as it were?

Can't you see that at times it is futile to "provide some sense" or "make
personal remarks" ("bla bla" hardly qualify as such), let alone to blow
one's top over every goddamned pompous pseudo academic chattering asshole?

Wow -- now I feel better.
