I'll drop one emoticon per 5 elipses..., oops, !!

Well, congratulations, All. It took a little while, but your funnybones finally overcame your aversion to rules and, gosh, you saw right through me. I can see that threads will continue to be entertaining, if not to the point. (I can't help it...) Hmmm, I've heard that if you're not willing to work to separate the wheat from the chaff, you don't deserve the pearl of wisdom. (boy, wouldn't and elipsis fit right there?)

So, 2Air, what is the right word if not hijack--steal, deviate, wander, unfocus, divert, curveball, obfuscate, misappropriate, segue [a]way, interlope, confuse, smoke screen, red herring,...?

My apologies to Jack, by the way.

Oh, my gosh, it's Thursday on the east coast and I love my Airstreamforums because it keeps me from doing real work!

Audio??? The only thing I hear while on the forums, is my time saying "goodbye".

I have to weigh in here...

Sorry, 2air... but you're a relative newcomer to ASF and I had the corner on the 'ellipses' movement on ASF.com long before you discovered us.

The regular use of the ellipses in modern prose was brought about largely through Herb Caen who wrote a column for the San Francisco Chronicle for over fifty years. I was a huge fan of Herb's for years until his untimely death at age 81 in 1997. The phrase "Three dot journalism" was coined to describe his column many years ago. I've long admired Caen's writing style and frankly admit to using it freely in my writing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herb_Caen

So there... I'm outed.

Roger

Anyone this site to ask is more Latin it is. I for one to be to grow tired of reading everything upon English. Can we to make fit origin using latin more often and to let go English. Or Airstream wouls facial expression better and shining upon Latin how upon a venacular. __________________

It took me a couple of minutes, Latin translater was a bit hard for me find, but here is what you said. (I thinK)

Cute, real cute......

Does anyone know how to get the sticky stuff off the inside walls when my refrigerator freezer gets cold and my box does not while my black water tank valve does not close all the way and leaves a pile in the middle of the tank of you know what and I have not bought an Airstream yet but this sure is an interesting Internet with a sagging on the left side of my axle should it be turned thirty degrees when I get a bulge on my Dun lop tire which were recalled by the price increase at WBCCI save the Wally campaign? How do I put my dog's name on the forum I am coming calendar rally?
