Default Dancing with the Philosophers

He should have good penmanship too, while we are at it.

OK, here's an idea for a reality TV show which I'll call "Dancing with the Philosophers", and it goes something like this.....

Default Oh. My. God

I didn't know this thread existed. I've been on a bit of a crypto-hiatus and came back to discover this! The comment section is half the fun of this site, and I am thrilled to read these. Of course, it is cutting into my puzzle time. But maybe that was your devious plan all along?

Queethebean, this is so wonderful to read! Maybe we've all been pitching in on this thread as a big surprise welcome-back party for you without even knowing it. I hope you enjoy some of your own gems in here. Like that Adam R. Gwizdala comment -- definitely one of my personal top 10 favorites.

here's the response i got:
"The search term you specified (r.) is under the minimum word length (4) and therefore will not be found. Please make this term longer.
If this term contains a wildcard, please make this term more specific."

wildcard? now i'm twice as confused!

It is good to be back!

I have to let you know how much I have enjoyed your grammar and editing comments. I was an English major and am a former proofreader. You are not alone!

Default For wvwoman - How to use "Search this thread"

The "Search this thread" field works like Google: you need to put the whole name "Adam R. Gwizdala" inside quotation marks to tell it you want the exact phrase. Without quote marks, the program thought you meant 3 separate search terms -- and the "R." was too short to process, so it rejected the whole request.

What to do: Under "Search this thread," type either the whole name inside quotes, or type just one unique search term -- "Gwizdala" in this case -- and it will work.

But OMG why don't I just tell you what the comment was? Because "Search this thread" is a great tool to have at your fingertips. I use it mainly for this "classic" thread, to check whether some gem I'm about to post has already been posted, but there are plenty of other uses for it. Very handy tool.

Wow, in that case, double welcome! We grammar folk need to stick together like two clauses around a semicolon.
