Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I, myself, always read what others have written. Good writing doesn't need gussying up, it doesn't need tricks and gimmicks to get its point across. Would Shakespeare be more if he had had his works flashing in lights? Would Pope or Cervantes, Twain or McGonagle, be greater if their works bounced around the page? No! These tricks, these trappings are used only to distract us from the Real Message of MOAB. Do not be fooled by these attractive wrappings, for inside the message is mere dust in the wind. Keep focused upon the Real Message of MOAB and let yourself be borne away by it to the realms of infinite glory. No, and no, and no! I say it again and again and again, do not be taken in by HTML tricks! Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what path others may take, but as for me, Give me....
Sorry. Got quite carried away there. Sorry.
