In light of some of the recent posts containing some harsh terms and thunderous slights, I wish to set out the LMC forum new posting policy. It's simple. You're only allowed to say something naughty about someone if you add a constructive clause to the sentence.

Allow me to give some examples:

Not allowed:   "Harvey, your car couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding."
Better:          "Harvey, your car couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding, but it does look pretty."
Preferred:      "Harvey, your car couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding, but it does look pretty. You must let me buy you a drink for
                    being such a splendid chap."

Not allowed:   "Your face looks worse than that of the Ford Scorpio."
Better:          "Your face looks worse than that of the Ford Scorpio, but I'm sure your mother loves you."
Preferred:      "Your face looks worse than that of the Ford Scorpio, but I'm sure your mother loves you. May I buy you a pint in

From now on, when I spot posts that fall foul of this policy, I will alert the membership to them by use of hyperlinked e-mails (complete with klaxons) and write a letter to my MEP. You have been warned.

Not a fan of "Sledge Hammer!", then?

Reporter: We're here at the scene of a liquor store robbery that was thwarted by the man beside me, Inspector Sledge Hammer. Inspector Hammer, tell us what happened.
Sledge Hammer: Well, Miss, I was in this store when two thugs entered and threatened the owner with shotguns. At that time, I drew my Magnum and killed them both. Then I bought some eggs, and some milk, and some of those little cocktail wienies.
Reporter: Inspector Hammer, was what you did in that store absolutely necessary?
Sledge Hammer: Oh, yes; I had no groceries at all.

I thought the last few posts were actually fairly light hearted. I hope "growing up" doesn't mean we cannot have some fun. I'm probably half way to becoming an old fogey one might say, but I still enjoy a bit of humour with my car talk Smiley...
