Let us see what happens, yes?

Good for you girl. And you did it the American way. You lodged a complaint at headquarters. You constantly make me so proud of you.

This is a forum of folks who talk back and forth using the English language. I don't believe we have a thread for puzzles, do we anyone?
Addie, I hope you realize I was making a joke in a back-handed way.

I really wish people would get it in their heads that saying "I love this," or "I support this," doesn't mean the same thing as "I hate everything else." The "offensive to immigrants" argument is ridiculous. How exactly is saying "I love and support the country you chose to live in" offensive?

No I didn't. So I apologize for being flippant. I thought maybe you hand your fingers on all the wrong keys.

Addie, "fingers on all the wrong keys" perfectly describes what most tweets look like! Probably because a lot of those posting just can't get their point across in 140 characters or less - your limit per "tweet". I've thought about signing up for Twitter just to follow a couple sports writers but never bothered. I have enough time-wasters going on in my life as it is. Besides, the only tweets that are really important to me are when our town has needed to notify us during power outages, and I can read those same tweets on the town's website. The idea of tweeting for the sake of it seems so self-absorbed and narcissistic

That's o.k.-----in one thread a couple or more of us were flippantly speaking Latin (and I took it a step further and posted in Klingon!) It was 'sanitized'(that's the term used) and those posts were deleted.

Maybe it was thought that I was cussing ----- in Klingon??? Doesn't everything in Klingon sound like cussing?

I learned Klingon by watching The Big Bang Theory.

For the last two days anything I eat brings a bitter taste in my moth, even a glass of water. Weird. Anybody heard of such thing?

Are you on different medications, Charlie? Any dental work lately?

As a couple of others ask---- always suspect a new medicine or supplement.
