    Exactly!

    All kidding aside, I have no idea why your posts keep popping into the moderation queue. Hopefully we can figure it out. But keep trying.

    How long has it been since the last Findo dupe? We are about due for one, I would think.

    Could be. But linked footnotes? Time will tell.

    Are linked footnotes such an oddity? I obviously have disrupted some sort of protocol. Sorry to have bothered the status quo. Good luck with the "old" discussions. I am a cougar fan. I trust they will do well this year. The suspensions are maddening. Glad to hear Langi's knee is only bruised. And here's hoping Hill's mid range passing skills have improved.

    Linked footnotes are definitely an oddity. But I agree that these suspensions are maddening. Argh!

    In-text links are very common, but footnotes on a forum like this? I've never seen it. Given the available hyperlink function, just do that.

    Ha, perhaps that no one remembers gives witness to their inefficacy.... I think it was Carl Sandburg who noted that footnotes are akin to having to go downstairs to open the door on your wedding night.

    No, they were entirely confined to my Sunday school lesson notes so I would infer that nobody read my Sunday school notes rather than damn footnotes in such a fashion.

    See? That's why I didn't mention it. It is the links that were the problem.

    I see the problem here is senescence on my part, as I read pretty much all of your lesson notes during my four-year tour as a GD teacher (interpretation of the abbreviation will differ among readers). They were awesome, although I suspect I flew past most of the notes.

    I think the more likely cause is that the URL referenced the brynmawr.edu domain.

    Why would that be a problem?

    We automatically moderate posts that contain links to colleges that consider themselves ivy league quality but that are in reality not even close. I thought that was well known policy.

    Not sure—is a “finderson” or is “findersoning” slang; a verb; a euphemism for insincerity or mischief? It is obviously an inside joke and a sign signifying the barking mad meerkat has identified a threat.

    The apprehension is understandable. I jumped into a deep hot spring reserved for oligarchy. My life is fragmented. My mind is fragmented. My time is fragmented. On an Internet message board that boasts members named: Solon, Pelaguis, Pheidippides, Pellegrino, Aristides, Moliere et al, Heraclitus seemed appropriate. My contributions can only be fragments and may or may not be attributed to some one real—as each of you?

    Nothing lowbrow about being at the corner of awesomeness: if you consider futility awesome. The Cardinals understand awesomeness differently.
