But if I told it, someone else might not get any sleep for laughing.

rfd,

When descending from your throne of pomposity, you might deign to spell the names of your subjects correctly.

I am aware of what I did and I did not find it important enough to change. What surprises me is that you didn't spot the other one I put in there for you. How can you let me have this much control over your mind????

It look like you have hit the bottom of the barrel with nothing constructive to say so now you're just being silly.

Ohmygoodness, I hope not. I have not read any actual name calling in these forums for a long time. We are, hopefully, above the level of the politicians we elect to govern us.

It's OK for Marty to say I was being pompous and imply that I am capable of eventually climbing down from my throne of pomposity because I deliberately chose to be pompous in that one sentence. Similarly, I think Marty was deliberately injecting a note of silliness into the whole thing which it needed at the time.

For either of us to say 'you are silly' or 'you are pompous' is totally different. That implies a total dismissal of another person and to begin a sentence with 'you are a....,' is only heard, as you say, in political 'debate' and on the playground.

Marty and I know each others posts to be mostly serious and genial. We are both free to inject silliness or pomposity at will but we would never descend to name calling.
