Yes, I read almost all posts. A very important point is that you read them in your head and you add a tone to what you are reading. You then assume that the tone you are using is the tone in which it is written, whereas I listen to every post and since it is synthetic Dave reading them, the tone is always the same - and, more importantly, neutral.Quote
Dear Susan, it is the TONE of your posts. It is not just me who have noticed it, the authors HAVE too, and other posters if you care to read them.
I am, I confess, getting a bit fedup with your constant saying what you think of me and the way I write my posts instead of responding to the text.
I do not write in a wishy-washy fashion. I try to make view xclear and if people infer a tone other than interest and enjoyment in taking part in the discussion - well, that's their problem not mine.
thinking that way is your problem, not mine. Why do you think you should tell me whether or not I can disagree with an article before the book is published or something? What is your authority?Quote
It is ok to disagree, but you do it straight away as soon as the book is mentioned by Graham, and make the authors feel like they are idiots. That is the way it comes across, I am afraid. Like, it would have been better if they had not written such a silly book.
try reading several times what I have written above.Quote
That is how it comes across to me.
