[ELCO Digest] scolds the Reno



Just a note to help people to trim posts, on most email programs if you
highlight the relevant text you want to keep before hitting =8Creply=B9, then
your reply is automatically trimmed for you, deleting the unwanted parts.
Reno has a point, especially with the digest version I used to get. You
could end up receiving reposts of reposts in digest mode which made the
whole thing virtually impossible to read. A relevant subject line helps
everyone, especially Julian if he ever wants to put a searchable archive
online in the future for members to refer too.

Hey Reno
Ah now dont feel too bad. No need for the apology either.
I dont feel sha-- ing as you say is a bad word.
Used like the words bloody or stupid it can be quite ok but in the context of what followed maybe thats a different story altogether.
What can be understood as one thing within a circle of friends/mates/ family etc can take on a whole different meaning when shared with the wider community.
Sometimes a look over a post as I always have to do, can reveal a lot of words or meaning that may need to be altered or changed with the view that it will reach a wide group of people with different views and attitudes. None of us are angels when it comes to expressive language but a time a place.
