You got the point Mike when you said " I will try to be more 
 tolerant" If i reference to those 3 "fun" messages not only to 
"your" message,  it's to demonstrate that between some limits many 
subjects can be discuss on this BB.

I was not judging the purpose of the "fun" message but i'm aware that 
some individual can ask for explanations regarding the real intent 
behind a post. BTW i just ask for that on the recent GPS-tsunami 

The reference i made to the often seen "OT" on this BB was made on 
purpose to make us understand what is OT for one cannot be OT for the 

I was in charge of the local club publicity couple of years ago and i 
remember one fellow a french course teacher who as you said also 
edited to a fault" It was fine slightly a pain in neck..but the only 
one drawbacks we lost many articles in our monthly club journal.

I can imagine some folks reading on this BB who are not very good in 
english they will refrain to ask for any questions fearing to be 
edited. For the spell checker i'm using a french one and as you can 
imagine he's not working very well in english. It is not a priority 
here but i will look for one ASAP.
