Drop The But

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.Blame Shakespeare.a

It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.Blame Shakespeare.aI'm feeling quite sombre at the moment:Do not go gentle into that good night,Old age should burn and rave at close of day;Rage, rage against the dying of the light.Though wise men at their end know dark is right,Because their words had forked no lightning theyDo not go gentle into that good night.Good men, the last wave by, crying how brightTheir frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,Rage, rage against the dying of the light.Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,Do not go gentle into that good night.Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sightBlind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,Rage, rage against the dying of the light.And you, my father, there on the sad height,Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.Do not go gentle into that good night.Rage, rage against the dying of the light.Königspudel

It's much better for players to say "yes, and" to another actor's statement and add to the story line than say "yes, but" which deflects the story line.I hope you stay.

Someone mentioned this and/but thing at work today (not connected to this Forum) and I think it may be going viral somewhere.It is hard to believe that there would be hate mail or PMs over this. Maybe she means that she is subscribed to this thread and getting notifications every time someone posts another bit of nonsense. Normal range of extrapolation is often x10, so 25 becomes 250.

Well, perhaps she will clarify what she means by that statement.I can't imagine any one here having the time to send 250 private hate messages though.Think of all the time taken that would be so much better spent abusing a wider variety of people publicly in the OT.Excessive PMs are a poor allocation of scarce resources...
