Posted:A lesser pertson would email the people in question and ask their permission. Maybe that's just me though....

Posted:Ahh, but at least cantus was only correcting himself, this is self improvement which is acceptable, where as being pedantic is undesirable. Actually, I have practically no opinion on this, but i beleve this is my first post as a member and i figured i'd write about something insignificant.p.s. i read all 9 pages of the official roll call yesterday. Hooray for me.

Posted:Itsgottab - Cantus was making a joke (surprise surprise!), if he was truly fussy he would have edited his post and not mentioned it to anyone...Besides, aren't you being fussy by complaining about how fussy he is about his own spelling. A non-fussy person would just accept another persona s fussy and not be bothered by it..

Posted:Well put Charles. Far better worded than my intended "Piss off Dan" retort.By the way, pidgeon has an E in it and this is the first friday night in ages when I haven't got at least one in me. Funny that.------------------C@ntusThere's only one way of life and that's your own.

Posted:Well Charles lives closer than I do. So I think he should take the job.Plus commuting to Sheffield to see my young lady would put even more of a strain on our relationship than the 65 miles I have to travel now. So I fear I will have to politely withdraw myself from the running.Now if you'd offered me a post, as say, Artistic Director. Or maybe Head Designer then it might be a different story.....It's good that you said you had your tongue in your cheek though. As neither Charles nor myself are known for our senses of humour. And often find it difficult to spot when others are joking.
