None at all. I was feeling playful yesterday. I'm not today. I was just discussing the whole thing with my therapist and accurately foresaw the course of our interaction, that's all. And was feeling playful about it. Today my crystal ball, appears rather gloomy and overcast, despite the validation. No playfulness at all.

Sigh. You missed my point entirely. As usual. An *official* greeter feels an obligation to greet. Extending the duties of an official greeter outside the newbie board, or adding additional official greeters outside the newbie board would help address an issue you brought up as one that you feel needs addressing. Blah Blah Blah. Thud Thud. Ouch.
> > You know, Dr. Bob. You really ought to consider opening up a problem to discussion and brainstorming by posters rather than just coming up with what you think are the best solutions and handing them down to us as decisions.
> Does anyone feel they haven't an opportunity to discuss and brainstorm? I'm sorry if I presented this as a decision, I'm far from sure it's the best solution.
Not just about this, Dr. Bob. That was a global suggestion, not an issue specific one. Thud Thud. Ouch.
I must be horrible at communicating, or you must be horrible at receiving. My head is getting a dent.
