    I understand this was probably tongue-in-cheek, but the fact is I don't really care who gets offended or doesn't. I just care that we don't discuss it here! The internet already has enough places to offend and to get offended.

    I think the other mods would agree with that statement.

    Problematic but I did fix it a bit as to the calendar start with a BC (of the BCE) to go with the generic "whatever". I'm stumped about the Winter Vs Summer dilema...any suggestions?

    Exactly right Jeff, just attempting to keep it light. Seems to me that if we cannot laugh at this stuff then the alternative is not pretty.

    I for one will honor the spirit and recognize the desire for such a rule. Allow me to take this time to wish for Peace on Earth and Good Will towards all men, and encourage all of us to do so at all times of the year.

    Thanks guys for keeping us on target! I appreciate all the hard work put into this forum---it really is the best! (and have a Merry Christmas, if you are so inclined!)
