Best advice I've heard in years:

"Never joke with strangers. Always practice safe jest."

If I had a blackboard, I'd write that out a hundred times as punishment for my unintentional rudeness.

As Art put it:
"Sarcasm doesn't transfer well onto a message board since there's no voice inflection to pick up on."

You are too kind, Art. In daylight, I can see that my post seemed snotty, even "absurdly rude", as tngirl put it.

While I am not always the "class act" that Hunzi makes me out to be, neither am I a "witch".

What I am, is sorry that I did not
"understand the culture of a board before attacking one of its dearest inhabitants."

Properly spanked and humbled,

Jeanie :-) <----to show humor
