Hahaha! Gerry, very funny, includes a lot of painful truths too. I for one never reject humour as calming oil on troubled waters, while also sneakily communicating a profound message!

Thanks very much for this useful information, Gerry. It sounds familiar.

I would be disqualified as I am not just lightly but highly frivolous.
I believe that I have a sense of humour but don't suffer fools gladly. Is that a contradiction in terms?

Hi Goth, I have given it serious thought and decided not to apply for this new site.

I am looking for a complete change of direction -  maybe cooking 🙂

Gerry, I hope you're merely being sarky, and not actually leaving to learn to stand the heat of the kitchen. I'll be away myself on holiday for awhile, so peace will hopefully reign again, and I don't mind being the 'bad object' everyone turns their wrath on to, empties their angst into, aims their love at, had that function it all my professional life! Hahaha!
I had to sub something this week, otherwise folk might think I was narked by all the dissonant pleasantness and run off into the back-woods! No, I'll be away on a break; hope you'll keep subbing, so I can read something when I come back! På Återseende!

What a stupid site. The point of critiquing and editing is to enable the author to improve their work in their own words with their own 'voice' not impose or bulldoze an author.

What a stupid remark. How lucky we all are there's someone on site, with authority, to point out what is humorous and what is not.
