Head's Up Everyone!
Whatever you do, do not make any little jokes or snide comments on these boards, because Emily the Word Nazi is on the job!
Getting pretty thin skinned in your old age, aren't you Ms. West?
I said absolutely nothing offensive in my post regarding Doyle's letter, beyond expressing my disgust with the nasty woman who accosted Doyle at his last public appearance, and you delete my entire post?

If you can't allow that (per the US Constitution), take the site down, because it's no longer a "forum".
