Since it is Friday, we should all have a cyber beer
and get along.

May I have a cyber strawberry daiquiri?

Chef Anne?! As in the Deli Diva in Largo?
If so, my family and I love your deli and especially your yummy sandwiches!
Haven't visited the area recently but might be there later in the year.
Wow...

You are really going to have your hands full over there come August (RNC). I rarely venture to your area... It's a completely different world from Orlando. Tampa has Redner and we get Disney. I'm sort of surprised they didn't hold RNC in Orlando, but then again... ;)

May pop by some day in the distant future though.

Once some Law student with nothing to do, stood at
the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and asked people to
sign a petition. The petition was a downloaded copy
of the Bill of Rights. Very few people signed it.

That is very interesting, Thom.

WOW! Small world. Give me a hint to let me know who you are. You know how we know all our customers by name. If you need your Deli Diva "fix" remember, we close for the deadly hot months of July and August, so time is running out!

Seriously, stop in and see us before we close for the season.

vicki,

I'd love to see you. Just don't stop in until we re-open in mid-September. We close for the hot months of July and August and take a much-needed break!

I've broken a few rules myself. Mostly the part about not putting in emails. I met with a few authors that I wanted to exchange manuscripts or cover photos. Kind of hard to do on a public forum.

What Marti had the guts to say out loud is what I was thinking right up front but too chicken to say.

You're welcome here. So is everyone else with their foibles and follies and penchants for twisting, bending, and breaking the rules (but not the copyright one...none of us will sit by kindly for that one :) )

I'm sorry if this hurts your feelings. It's not intended to. I just don't want the alternative opinion to go unspoken.

Jeanette,

All she did was post the very rules that Amazon publishes. Did you read her response? She did nothing.

I guess it's the post itself that bothers me a little. Like I said, I'm a chicken and don't want to start an argument or ruffle feathers, but at the same time, I just have always had the feeling that of all places,[i] this[/i] was the forum where people cared enough about each other that we would let the little things slide.

Every one of us who have posted a large number, if we were to honestly go back and look, would have broken one of those rules.

I'm getting sappy. That's what comes from reading too many romances ;)

Fight! Fight!

I see nothing wrong with posting the rules. Most newbies don't take the time to read them and have to be told before they become valuable contributors. I was one of those, and I never read the rules until someone like you posted them directly into the forum. It's far more bloodless around here to post the rules occasionally, helping us all thereby. Even us "oldtimers" need a review every now and again.

Also, note that when one runs out of real ammunition, the next thing to grab and lob at the other side is an insult. So, when someone attacks you it just makes them look desperate.

I think you're doing a great job, Marti. I find your comments are usually invaluable.

I agree jeanette, I think most of us have made those mistakes early on, especially when new, and posts like the OP's can be scary even if not intentionally so. I guess they just come across as a bit bossy , being devoid of kind words to go with them..

Then blame Amazon not Anne.

Hell Amazon does not even enforce the rules as we all have seen.

There's no blame here. I think Anne has a lot to contribute to the forum. Just expressing a difference of opinion...even if my difference of opinion doesn't have Amazon's backing...
