Any meaning read into my message is the product of your own mind...
Nice one Lark
So glad to see that the 'mild sarcasm' has not affected your sense of humour
Glad to see you are still here on RibNet and contributing - just the way we all do - ignore detractors and get on with life. (Not that I'm agreeing that anyone was detracting you in the first place!)
Anyway .... as to the rest of this post - oh how sad that some people can't put up with a bit of a laugh and the pi$$ being taken out of them once in a while. Get a life and grow up people.

Hence we are not good at communicating with only the words displayed before us.
You DO have the option who you have a pint with. Use your option if you ain't happy..

Maybe we could set up a special area for all those sensitive types who see slurs & slights in every sentence. A sort of "Contra-Bilges" where they could sit on Laura Ashley prints, sipping green tea whilst reading rule #4 the Guardian & contemplating solutions to world peace. ......
Yet again Pikey Ė spot on!
And while Iím at it just a word on our Admins Ö.
