    For all those who are lacking a sense of humour......



    For complaining about my 'guess what I saw today' posting....

    Satire: A literary work in which human vice or folly is attacked through irony, derision, or wit.

    Hey Matt, that's nothing - I posted a tweet on Twitter today that said, "Hey Gordon, there's a Big Issue pitch going in my town. Good spot just outside Iceland. #ukelection #ge2010", and I had a rather snotty email reply from the Office of the Labour Deputy PM, no less! Result!

    @tech_guy ... I can see the news headlines ... "Gordon on the way to Iceland with Big Issue!" I suppose it would still make him feel important.

    And had your post been ANY of the above, I'm sure people would have found it funny.

    Thing is Witch I don't think you find anything funny or amusing - please don't take 'a-fence' but there are some right stiff people who take life, ICT and this site way too seriously - never mind though I am sure something will be able to be done for these people in the future. Modern medicine techniques are advancing every day !!

    I repeat: it wasn't me that reported or dealt with it - so quite what your comment re my ability to find something funny, or not, is about, goodness knows.

    But then, and don't YOU take offence - most of the time I have no idea what you are going on about, neither do I have the interest to try and work it out...

    I was merely commenting on the fact that you seem to believe that people's right to report any post they wish to is somehow wrong.

    Probably. It aids mental thought.

    You misunderstand, it aids thoughts of a mental nature, like this

    I hardly take offence to anything said on here, it's the stiffs who do - just wondering though, if you [ and I quote ]
    ' most of the time I have no idea what you are going on about'
    Do you feel you have the right to remove / edit some of my postings ?
    Seems a strange way to do things, delete and edit things you don't understand. But thanks for giving me a hint on the way you monitor postings, it explains a great deal.
    It's nice having a two way dialogue with you which have not resulted in edited / removed posts and in which I now have a better understanding of how things work.
