Obviously Judy maintains a database of messages she copies from the forum and keeps them in a folder for future use. It's probably a folder marked "FFL", and in a sub-category a folder marked "share", right under a folder marked "barry" and then one marked "willytex"; this last folder is probably where Judy stores her macros. It used to be she could easily do a Search on Yahoo Groups, but these days with the advent of NEO it would be easier to just store the posts she wants to re-post later to comment on. This is a sure sign of an obsessive character trait. Go figure.

Judy, your previous post indicates that you are keeping track of posts you think are clueless and you're ranking them! I admit it makes me wonder about your mental situation.

Yes, I would have to question this as well, Sharon. I mean, out of all of the clueless, stupid, insipid, inane, helpless-little-girl posts that you write here how she can rank them is beyond me. I have to side with you on this one.

<< from yahoo answers: Irony is probably one of the great misused words of our generation. In its pure form it requires the speaker to say one thing and mean another, and also requires at least one person present to believe that the speaker means what he says and at least one who knows otherwise.

"Irony is a form of utterance that postulates a double audience, consisting of one party that hearing shall hear and shall not understand, and another party that, when more is meant than meets the ear, is aware both of that more and of the outsiders' incomprehension."
-- Fowler's Modern English Usage.

Parody is imitation of the written or spoken words of another for the purpose of ridicule.

Satire is a humorous artistic expression (such as a novel or essay) intended to attack folly, stupidity or vice. It can employ a number of types of humor, including sarcasm, irony and wit. >>

            Oh, so now it's "irony" instead of a "parody"?


            a. A literary or artistic work that imitates the
            characteristic style of an author or a work for comic
            effect or ridicule. See Synonyms at caricature.
            b. The genre of literature comprising such works.
            2. Something so bad as to be equivalent to intentional
            mockery; a travesty: The trial was a parody of justice.
