How dull. Your _drivel_ is my sanity-saving, human, UTTERLY NECESSARY, real
world communication. You can call it whining if you like. I prefer the
(accurate but wordy) description I saw in a medical journal: "emphatic
verbal release of accumulated stress reaction." I'll accept the occasional
whine as a reminder that I'm not the only writer who stumbles over petty
little issues, works for/with an occasional turkey, and reaches overload at

Keep it up, folks. Even whines can be informative, helpful, and amusing.
