What depresses me is the literal-mindedness of many list members. Perhaps the reason is that they are responding in quick breaks from work, but many responses and threads seem to spring up because posters miss the hyperbole or sarcasm in a comment.

As Eric Ray remarked, these techniques, while legitimate, aren't a very effective way to get your point across on this list.

"Pity the poor policemen, pity the boys in blue,
Always rushing about, they have got a job to do,
Blowing their whistles, chasing the likes of you,
Waiting on glory now."
- OysterBand, "Waiting on Glory"
