We've had unseasonably warm, dry weather here. The few days we have had rain it's been mostly during my work or sleep hours.Al Davison said:Wow! We got our scoots on practically the same day and I've got just over 200 miles on mine....It has rained here something like 26 out of the last 30 days.
With apologies to BJ Thomas:Al Davison said:...I've got just over 200 miles on mine....It has rained here something like 26 out of the last 30 days.
I think you mean "...if I find out who did such a thing to my words and account, he or she will run out of throttle..."ajwood said:Lifting the text of a poster here on b-usa and posting it as a new message without the permission of the original poster is utterly unethical
and if I find out who did such a thing to my words and account, you will run out of
throttle before you think you've gotten away with it.
However...Brian said:For any who may be confused by the sudden appearance of this strange hommage to Pink Floyd, ajwood wrote a little cover on the song that referenced a new member's purchase of a Burgman in Tel Aviv, thus the reference to the Wall (The Wailing Wall), and that inspired me to add my meter and rhyme.
I did move the posts for the reason Brian stated. I tried to move them together so that they would remain in context, but it did not work as I had anticipated. Brian complained (nicely) via PM - I have avoided similar moves since. The moderator job is often discretionary, and I try to do it without upsetting forum members, but this time it went a bit sideways. I did not "hack" your post AJ - I simply moved it, and may have inserted a comment to explain the move after Brian's objection. I apologize for upsetting both of you.Brian said:BTW, the post was lifted by a moderator -- pauljo, if I recall -- who aparently didn't get the reference to the Israeli's post, and thought our "poetry" belonged in the Cafe rather than where it originated.
I agree that it was not the best course for him to have moved it without notifying us, since -- without context -- the meaning changes. That's why I explained it in the second post on this thread, once I discovered that my post in the other thread had become the top post here.
This does not even rhyme or meter?ajwood said:The phrase "run out of throttle" is just a phrase, not directed toward anyone
and without malice.
I believe that the Reply that contained the poem meant one thing, but
to have it posted as New would make it mean another.
I say this because it can look like it is "in production" when it appears
in both a Relpy and New.
The issue that I have concerning the generation of posts, with my identity,
should be just that, my identity.
The more prudent path would be to reference the text of another by Quote
as it has always been. This way, the concept of a privately generated account is not compromised,
that is to say that a sourcerers apprentice splits their own brooms, not the
broom of another.
This guards anothers privacy, not instead to exploit it.
