All right guys, fun is fun

About two weeks ago I mentioned my apparent talent for killing comment threads. Since then, it's gotten even worse than before.

If y'all are doing it on purpose, then knock it off. It ain't funny no more.

Look! It's a comment! Right here!

Come on over and start a comment thread. You can't kill it! It's already dead.

I have a similiar talent but in verbal communication.

OK, Ted, here's the deal! It's not good enough to comment "And that and this true and that's all." (not that you've ever posted that...).

The problem here, Ted, is that your comments are TOO witty, insightful, germaine etc--once we have read your response, we realize that anything we may add is superfluous...

Darn it Susie, you keep that up and my hat won't fit. If I believed any of that of course, you flatterer you. BTW, don't stop. :D
