GUEST,Fed Up Posting anonymously (184* d) RE: Posting anonymously 10 Jul 01


Initials: A-l-l.

Sorry for exasperation IanC, have tried to be reasonable. Initially embarrassed by scrutiny of the way I posted as a GUEST, went straight to message box and started typing, didn't go back to From line before "Submit message"

A few haughty sniffs later, some point finger: "fill in all blanks properly, or submission automatically rejected by those scrutizing GUEST messages with magnifying glass."

Response to finger pointing:

Bad All.

Bad, bad All.

Give sheepish explanation: didn't fill in From: line because I just didn't.

Met with more hostility.

Resolve to do better next time.

Next time: give anohter, hopefully polite explanation.

Not good enough, All.

Do it our way, or else.

Try to find a humorous, happy compromise for all.

"See below" in From line.

Keep signing All at bottom as I had been.

Then told "All" was a bad name to begin with, should just go with "See below" (NOTE: All's interpretation)

Harumph she says.

Can you imagine the next scene:

{Why is she typing initials A-l-l? Why doesn't she use caps?}

{To GUEST See below: We won't talk to you until you type the initials in all caps! Go away you troll!}

Not See Below.

Fed up GUEST.

Think I'll just leave it at that.
