Ok. There's no need to agree on tastes. Though I would love to, I
really do not work plugging for Pink Floyd. Besides we were discussing
our teenagers and experiences with them.
There I do disagree.
"Pink Floyd is not your Pink Rock" is NOT discussing teenagers, it is an
attempt to discuss your ugly pink noise, whether you call it rock or floyd.

A mere polite trim is no snip. We've discussed beyond the trims by

Very funny play on words. I get it, I think. I still cannot type the
end word in that sequence.
gottasnip = got to snip, an often impulsive need to remove words
unnecessarily (impossible on paper without censorship) and a new
practice made possible only by the computer.

John do not take most trimming, especially mine, as rude snipping. You
erroneously called john, in another thread, a cretin after he had
liked your response by posting "Perfect!" regards your words. Your
reactions are staged to be confrontational, even where none is
Perhaps if you cited the "Perfect!" post I might see what point you are
making, after years of cynical experience with usenet I probably read it as
sarcasm. You've seen through me, I am confrontational. Here is my take on
snipping (or trimming as you prefer to call it). When a topic is exhausted
and agreement is reached (or agreement to differ, as we must when it turns
to mere opinion such as your pink flood) then snip, the topic is closed.
Differing opinions by their very nature cannot be resolved to either party's
satisfaction. However, it is often the case (and I'm not accusing you of
this) that some newsgroup contributor makes a non-factual opinion as though
it were fact that is so outrageous I'll snip anything following it without
bothering to read the rest and challenge him immediately. For example: "The
universe is finite", or "aether permeates all of space", or "God made
everything". Or I may killfile him immediately, depending on my mood. But
for the most part, I do not snip, I'm open to discussion either to have my
own mind changed or to change the mind of the other correspondent. There are
occasions when I'll say "Yes, that's a very good point, I hadn't thought of
that" and learn something. For example, Henry Wilson pointed out an apparent
time contraction and expansion which I had previously overlooked. See if
this fascinates you and try to explain it:

Sure, Italy or France would be nice too. London weather, not so
suitable, the whole year round. Presently I remain grounded in
I found the contrasting weather (cold in winter, hot in summer) of the
North Eastern USA preferable to the constant heat of Florida, where there
are only three seasons: summer, rainy season, summer, short spring.
London is even worse, the temperature can be 40 degrees in January
or July and the sun not appear for weeks at a time. But I'm not here
for the weather or golf or tennis, I have an electric wheelchair and a
free bus pass, the buses have electrically operated wheelchair ramps.

Taxes may readily be in coins.
Pay up and you can collect your tea, it grows on trees (well, bushes).

Well, the news article just happened to be in Today's Media.
