Possibly gnomic in my opening post. Definitely obtuse in understanding a couple of the responses. I am away for 24 hours and seem to have lost the plot. What does my post have to do with Musket or parrots?

I think it could well be, Will! (Thumbs up likey sort of thing at you)

Not sure about being a gnome in longjohns, Steve, but I was reminded of an old computer joke.

What goes 'pieces of seven, pieces of seven'?

Parroty error...

"Huh? As in WTF?" back at you Dave.

I took it that your opening post was announcing your departure from Mudcat. It is clear (to me) that others also interpreted it in this way, some even celebrating the fact. The connection with Team Musket is that they haven't made an appearance since the back end of August and you were, perhaps, going to join them.

Have you got just the one leg and are you longish?

Gnomes are, surely by definition, shortish. Perhaps you are Short John Silver, Long John's vertically challenged cousin?

The simple 'Huh?' was in answer to GUEST Date: 01 Nov 15 - 01:35 PM and GUEST,achmelvich - PM Date: 01 Nov 15 - 01:52 PM, DC. Guess you were the first? Got it now - Thanks but, no, I am not going anywhere and it had nothing to do with anything on Mudcat. I will just say that working for 25 hours solid does strange things to your head!

The "Huh? As in WTF?" was for the GfS who makes little sense at the best of times and made even less here :-)

Cheers

No, not me. I was logged in but my first attempt at posting didn't take. It seems that my cookie was eaten at the same time and, without realising, my second attempt was posted as an anonymous Guest.

At least one of the Muskets name is well known, achmelvich. You could try getting in touch if you are really interested. But, especially seeing as I have already said this has nothing to do with Mudcat, why bring it up here?

There are people on this site who frequently complain about personal remarks being made towards them. Is it my imagination or are they also guilty of doing the same. (see post at 06.58pm)

That (although I'm not sure I agree with your observation)does not alter the fact that the very people who complain most frequently about personal attacks are often the very same people who start the process off.

If people do not want personal attacks on themselves it would seem logical not to make personal attacks against other people in the first instance.

Just a thought.

As a dispassionate observer who attempts to address the issues rather than the issuer I would say your imagination can take a rest. They do.

This is analogous to the observable and measurable phenomenon of kiddies fighting (and not so kiddy too). Child A pushes Child B who pushes Child A who etc. But there is a discrepency between what the pusher feels and what the pushed feels. As a result the force grows at about 70% per push until the parents or biceptual limits interveen.

You can see it in threads. But to be honest, it is the responsibility of the messenger to phrase adequately, and the reader to interpret correctly. Angry people don't usually use emoticons.
