ah - i had left this in my inbox because i hadn't had time to look and see what was going on. the comment makes it clear! and it works very well. the effort of censoring! subtracting text, red-lining it, pasting over it - then finally the stamp of approval.

not really...
more that with a little effort someone can censor your work to mean the absolute opposite of your original meaning and then with a stamp of "what are you gonna do about it?" kick you up the arse for good measure

oh sure i saw the opposite thing and arse-kicking - but think about how censors are often idiotic bureaucrats - one of them erases and gives it to the next who says, "no not yet" and uses a red pen and give it to the next and so on - from the deputy under-secretary of censoring upwards... too much of a feeling of creativity if all three or four emendations came from the same hand... although... yes, i see your point that there might be a creative censor doing it gleefully... although i don't think glee is a big part of their tool kit... am i making any sense here?

Pure excellence, Dafydd ... totally ambivalent feeling it gives to me.
It's like.. the moment when push and pull meets somewhere, in between (if that is ever able to happen).

you're too good to me :)

I think it happens all to often, we just fail to see it and push/pull back

I'm only objective, Dafydd ;)

Hm, might we should sometime "accept the wave", if it comes - I think you somehow did by writing this.

To resist is not always the best choice..

I suppose we should, but we should only - if we do - do it fully informed and aware... not always the case

:nod: Definitely. Otherwise, it would be an irresponsibility even.
