"Patrick Ward, get off of this List, right now! This is for adults to act
like children, not for children to act like adults! :)
ps: I hope you find a pen pal, but I don't think you'll find one here."
Come on folks !! The original post was VERY well phrased, succinct,
very adult-like. Hence T.'s tongue-in-cheek reply ? Which I find very
appropriate in this forum. Must we all resort to bland pablum lest we
risk offending someone ?? And T.'s comment that he is unlikely to
find a Scout pen-pal on this list is right on target.
I hope that Patrick responds to T.'s comments. I find it very hard to
believe that he was offended or put off by T.'s comments. I would guess
he is more 'receptive' than many who 'commented' on T. Mark's post.
