EQUIVOCAL applies to language left open to differing interpretations with the intention of deceiving or evading

OBSCURE
not clearly seen or easily distinguished, nor readily understood or clearly expressed
It implies a hiding or veiling of meaning through some inadequacy of expression or withholding of full knowledge.

CRIPTIC implies a purposely concealed meaning

AMBIGUOUS applies to language capable of more than one interpretation

"I'm glad you can see it now as humor. Maybe I should've included a smiley when I posted." Dr. Bob

"Or, YOU could defend and explain YOUR humor, lol haha, :-)

Can I just take a stab at this, Dr. Bob, since we're just jokin around? :-)

I believe you never had any intention to have us "rate" each others posts. It would destroy babble (pretty sure you know that, of course thats my opinion only):-)

You knew there would be "much ado" about your post, yet you did it and disappeared.:-)

Further, I suggest you knew there would be a long thread about "Lake Wobeher". In fact, you had that material ready, word for word (sorta). So, the only mystery left (for me) is why? :-)

Hmm...personally, I'm kinda indifferent to the post...so probably others are too. Its kinda like when you referred to us as "this herd". Now you had to know THAT wasn't gonna fly :-)

So what we have here, is a failure to communicate:-)

First, you (try to) provoke us, then you let us carry on for a while. Next, you let someone else explain it away, and then...you wait/watch. For what, I wonder? :-)

Babbler bonding? A common enemy? Draw posters and lurkers to Admin? (but why...) An experiment? No, too long running for that :-)

Okay, I'm stumped for the night. No worries, Doc Bob, I'm not a weak woman, me and my peeps will be on it tomorrow like white on rice! :-)

And all this is just humor, right? k? good :-)

Have a good night Dr. Bob :-)

:-) Jade
