You were joking? Oh, OK then. I just took your post in the context of the ever prevalent "when in doubt, speculate", which is actually more like "in the absence of actual data, make shit up" (I think a lot of scios/ex-scios caught that bug from Hubbard).
Pro tip: an appropriate emoticon can kinda substitute for a facial expression on a Message Board.
You probably don't know the back-story so I'll fill you in on just a small aspect of it... "forming a Squirrel Group" and "Practicing Scientology Without A License" are items included in the CofS' Official Panda DA Pack. The fact that I have nothing to do with any of these people or things doesn't seem to matter too much.
I must still be sensitive about it or something.
You're right...I should use the emoticons more. My humor, even in person, tends to be dry. But it comes across better in person because people can see my facial expression, hear the tone of voice, etc... Plus, I tend to be a Joker and Degrader. It was never handled. I needed the Trashcan Rundown.
I knew you had to have a sense of humor though because your forum name is very funny.
Anyway, thanks for understanding and for the advice.
