Re: Random natterings

There are people on the forum in LS&R asking for advice who are too young to get the joke about the bottle of Courvoisier.

Or, at least, treat it like I treat cheeseburger cheeseburger cheeseburger, or Aykroyd as Julia Child's or something.

Re: The Darker Side of the News

I'd rather the discussion with EMPT stop. Especially after EMPT apologizes.

Otherwise, move the conversation along to something else. If you feel a need to get in your two cents on EMPT's words....

Don't.

So do I just pretend to be Belial here, or do I wait for EMTP to appologize and, when that doesn't happen, ban him then?

Given that I'm posting this, obviously the second. But maybe I'll be surprised!
