Withdrawal Symptoms

Original post made by Hal Bailey on Oct 5, 2009

Dear Dolores,

I was challenged today to confront various TDW-sponsored pseudonyms with the reality of my withdrawal of my application for membership in the Alamo MAC. "What the HAL," I said, "Let me give fodder to contempt!"

Laughingly, so many neighbors appreciated the provocation of the absurd and the invitation of the contemptuous.

Of course, Gina and you could spoil such fun by applying TDW Forum's Terms of Use, but it would be unexpected.

Today, due to the failure of district 3 to follow usual and customary interview and negotiation specifications related to application, I simply withdrew from unlikely consideration as a member of the Alamo MAC.

Now how fun is that and that?

Definitely a case of premature withdrawal.

Dear Dolores,

For a person who claims to care about the area, a certain person at odds with the pseudonymous personae on this blog seems to quit the second anyone questions him, and sometimes when no one does.

Also, I've noticed that the same certain individual post multiple times a day on here on every thread and rarely provides any real information or positive contribution beyond giving himself the giggles at his self-perceived cleverness. For a person who purports to be at the center of a web of thousands of so-called 'e-exchanges' he certainly has a lot of free time on his hands.

Now how silly is that?

Dear Dolores,

As you have noticed by copies of e-exchanges, I have been sharing Edward's (Just Plain Ted) humor with many fellow humorists around our globe.

Among the comments by local humorists, all part of All things Alamo and Pop(u)lar e-exchange, it has been suggested that I register the the pseudonym Edward provided as "For a person" but, sadly, my login to EXPRESS registration just doesn't seem to work.

Any chance you can handle that for me?

aka, "For a person"
