On behalf of myself and the my fellow Moderators, I want to assure everyone that we have thoroughly flogged Andrew over his lapse in judgement and are now debating whether to have him keel-hauled immediately, or wait until we get to shark infested waters.

But on the other hand, I begrudgingly must admit that my esteemed fuzzy colleague is probably right that coming aboard a strange sailing website (and trust me, most of us qualify as truly strange sailors) to slam someone that you have never met is probably a bit of a faux pas in many of the finer circles....

Jus' Say'n... Anyone else want to jump in here to further beat this dead horse,

Group hugs and a chorus of Kumbaya anyone? Anyone?

Jeff

Gee Whiz...and I did think my fairy tale was one of my better efforts....

Still and all, I'm a sailor and along with the rum goes the lash and the sodomy...sheesh.....maybe we should update that for the new millenium....how about Rum, Nipple Rings and the Lash ?

I've never seen a wombat do a 180 before!
Usually they are stubborn little buggers who will not deviate from their chosen path regardless of what's in their way.
Never pitch a tent on a wombat path.

So SN often provides good advice, suspect humour and even insights into animal behaviour.

I think we ought to blame you Simon . As soon as you chipped in, it all fell apart and they are all now hugging and kissing. Could you please just sit on the sideline and watch, like a voyeur [ so to speak]

Somebody get me a tissue.

This was an example of seriously dysfunctional trolling.
