EDIT : Aaaand... it's (un)official, some people have been putting minuses elsewhere than the equalizer... naughty, naughty! It's not like I can't see who you are. Well, so I can't. But still, you know who you are, put yourselves in the corner and give yourselves a talking to .
I guess having each option be self-contained using both pluses and minuses will be the way to go.

The displacement-impaired deserve our charity.

Don't even try.

You're not nearly as charming as <tt>Tigger_Two</tt>, and your distractions are generally much more malicious in nature.

After something as pompously condescending as what you just pulled<a href=http://www.techrepublic.com/forum/discussions/103-340638-3413118>*</a>, you refuse the charity of my inversal? Suit yourself.

Nice footnote.

What's that asterisk supposed to mean?

That wasn't (intended as) condescension.

by apotheon In reply to So

. . . but thanks for playing.

Seriously, you seem to have a real attitude problem toward me "today" -- and you accuse <strong>me</strong> of being erratic.

By the way, I'd prefer longer link text than a single asterisk, if you don't mind. It was not immediately obvious the asterisk is a link.

Not surprised

by santeewelding In reply to So

That you failed to note the asterisk, unaccustomed as you are to tight writing.

Now I want to say, right back at ya...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to So

Here I was, proffering a court jester transmutation of what could be construed as haughty, undercutting that construction... and then I get an accusation of malice in my face.
Being less charming then Tigger_Two is in factual evidence, I have no quarrel with that.

This "take offline" thing is awful.

by apotheon In reply to So

There's now a <a href="http://www.techrepublic.com/forum/discussions/103-340789-3413720?tag=discussion-thread">discussion post floating around somewhere on its own</a>, divested of context, because I accidentally selected "take offline" instead of backtracking to a previous level of comment nesting before replying.

I don't think it's awful

by AnsuGisalas In reply to So

I think it's Godawful.
It's not entirely void of context, however. The title of such a thread is a link to where it was forked off from.
That's something that has to be made a lot more obvious though.
