Dear Charles:

Please don't take this wrong: this really isn't an "attaboy."

The rules are quite clear, they are made available to each prospective member and they make a great deal of sense.

More importantly: they are the rules and we all pledge to follow them when we join.

It is really a shame that you don't seem to have the necessary maturity and/or intelligence to appreciate them.

Perhaps you would be happier on Facebook? Do give that a try, and please don't bother to let us know how you like it.

I wish you the best, but please: do it somewhere else.
