    Clarification, pliss

    Dear Squad

    I had cause to say "F***ing Hilarious" in the Word Games thread. I was advised by someone looking after my hide, that such verbiage might result in very bad things. The word was spelled in full.

    I opined that such an excited utterance was more than allowable under the circumstances, as it was clear that the mirth of the moment had overtaken me. The comment was clearly directed at the world and in good humour.

    I edited the post nontheless and would appreciate a definitive ruling for 'ron.

    Cheers
    H

    This place is like commo China. You can say whatever you like as long as you do not criticise the government.

    Careful. FG has fantasies about such set-ups. Even says so in his profile.

    Do I need to get a second opinion? I think yes.

    Ummm... polite request that you self censor by putting an asterisk in one of the words in the quote marks in your first sentence (and I don't mean H*larious!)

    Some may have a field day...

    If this is something you would like observed for your own sensibilities, it would be my pleasure to comply.

    Sigh... I am sorry Howard, but I did try my best to warn you.

    Goodbye Howard, it was sort of nice knowing you... hope we get a chance to meet again sometime in the future.

    I have enjoyed your posts, and think they have been far more constructive than those of certain others in equivalent positions.

    Take care.

    Huh? Is there a funeral I don't know about? Does the bell toll for me?

    Big Kev has his hand on it.

    Yes, you are absolutely correct on that score. The search function is your friend for finding posts from 2004.

    ...

    Big Kev's hand is as to the spin of the world as Warney's hand is to a cricket ball.

    PS Kev, before you ask, feel free to use that one as a sig line.
