Yeah, when I think of the world's more prolific writers... I think India. No, wait - that the world's most prolific customer service call centers. My bad.

Bollywood.

Hey Morris, don't you love when they answer the phone and say their name is "Steve" or "Susan?" :lol: LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL :lol: :roll:

I dont like any type of customer service or support calls. Bollywood on the otherhand is looking like a great source of creative talent and I look forward to seeing it grow.

Why are we answering posts from five years ago? Just wondering.

I really liked the book "Secrets of Screenplay Structure" by Linda Cowgill.

To keep the boards going. You've been here a day and you're already questioning it?

Plus you never know when someone might have the same question and the advice might help.

I dont look at dates just topics and what is at the top. Plus I usually only poke in for 5 or 10 minutes here or there throughout the day. I'm usually in a rush and attention to details like that and *clears throat* grammar kinda go out the window. And now I'm off to another meeting.

Not at all...but you asked an inane question after being here for ONE DAY - kind of moot, don't you think? In a sense, you were being flippant, a bit facetious and a bit demeaning toward the website. Now, go look up those words and get back to me.

And the ignore button for you is, ah yes, *blip*

Inane means silly or time-wasting which is subjective. You found the question a waste of time or silly - I didn�t. So the question may be subjectively silly, but isn�t, in fact, silly or inane. It also means insubstantial which it clearly isn�t. It�s actually quite a good question. The OP is long gone. Responding to a five year old post by making a joke about India (and not answering the question) does provoke the question, �Why?� Even flippant and demeaning is subjective. Muddy�s India comment could be considered both. And it sure doesn�t offer any helpful advice regarding the original question.

And R!ff�s question couldn�t possibly be demeaning to the website. You can humiliate or degrade a person, not an object. Are you sure you�re using facetious correctly? How can one be inappropriately funny towards the website? Perhaps Muddy, Morris and dkisabeth found the question facetious, but the website couldn�t. Your use of moot is incorrect. As an adjective, moot means it�s open to debate - or that�s it�s something to be discussed though there is no definite answer. Muddy�s question doesn�t seem like he�s asking for more debate on the subject. It CAN be used to mean irrelevant. But the fact that R!ff has been here for �one day� doesn�t make his question irrelevant, so it was used incorrectly. The day Muddy made his India comment he bumped 15 or so very old posts with comments that could be considered flippant - several of them quite demeaning to the original poster. I, too, wonder if that was done to offer helpful advice as dkisabeth suggests. And I've been here for more than one day.

Wow....Are ya done? Great. Do not pretend to instruct me on the nuances of the English language. The word moot was NOT used incorrectly. Read it again.[/b]

Wait, there's an ignore button? Hey Riff Raff does your vagina hurt?
