Sorry, Ann - I thought this thread was about Feste and Judy; now
you've made it all about me.

Is it alright with you, Ann, if I post a few messages here, for
just about five minutes? Just five, and then I'll turn the posting
over to you. Is that alright with you? 


No Tex, it is not alright.


You must have no unacceptable thoughts or criticisms, comrade!

This is just trolling by Judy - more fibs by the ankel-biter.

Richard, this is so tedious I can barely stand to scroll by it.  Can't you just 
STFU and leave Judy be, at least through the new year.  Doesn't meditation give 
you any ability to exercise self-discipline?

Not exactly clear what you are getting at, Emily. What is so tedious 
about reading an occasional post from Judy? This is the fourth 
installment posted by Judy to Feste. However, in answer to your 
question: some people just feel better when they have someone to talk 
to. Go figure.

It's not standard practice on Twitter, the most popular instant 
messenger program on the internet - anyone would be an idiot to waste a 
character by putting dots in between words when you're limited to 140 
characters. It would be stupid, really stupid. If anyone did that on 
Twitter, they'd probably be mocked and ridiculed to no end.

 Em, Richard is one
 self-indulgent SOB who has no ability to self-limit,
 self-censure or self-control. He is very much like his

Keep up the good work, Feste. There are NO standard practices on the 
internet or the web. And, that includes capitalizing the word web. It 
used to be that the standard practice was to capitalize the word 
internet, but that has all changed. These days NOBODY capitalized 
Web or Internet. That's because there in no web or internet - 
it's all just tubes and cables and routers.


 And, only newbies put dots in between words on Twitter. That's a fact 
that is undisputed.

Feste, you really have nothing to work with here but you are trying, 
valiantly. Just give it up, go back to whatever you were doing before 
you got caught up in this cesspool called FFL. I know you have better 
things to do; get out that old gingerbread recipe from your 
grandmother, water the Christmas tree, write your last-minute holiday 
cards, take an extra spin around the town square but please do 
something more important than whatever this is you're doing here.
