I wasn't going to comment on it, but since you have been pushing it: I 
would like to hold everybody to the same standard.

"incorporating a negative emotional tone in a writing can be an eff, 
even pos, tool"


"Or you could be like me, and slather it on, like bar-b-que sauce on a 
roasting pig. The sweet, spicy kind."


The most I can do is make *this* place hospitable.  Yes, people will be 
snarky at times.  I simply ask that they do so elsewhere.  On that note, 
I have no quibble with you.
