Dear Vacuity,

 

Sadly I nowadays no longer have as much free time as I would wish in

order to keep up with one of my minor hobbies, pointing out the deep

inadequacies of posters to this group. However, I am glad to say that

you have embarassed yourself to such a degree that I would feel truly

heartless if I did not respond with a patronising, avuncular sort of a

flamette. I am resigned to the fact that subtelty on Usenet is about as

appreciated as cannibalism at Sunday School, and I do try my best to

exaggerate the level of sarcasm and ironic effect I use in my posts so

that even the many well-knnown-to-be-dim Americans that (allegedly) read

this stuff do not become too confused. Sadly, I fear that I cannot quite

reach down to the levels required on occasion, but I hope you will bear

with me as I try to readjust once again. In summary then, duh.
