Overnight we had an incident here on the JSP forum in which a poster used some language that should not be used in a professional forum. I apologize to those of you who were subjected to that language before I had a chance to edit the topic.

I know technology can sometimes be frustrating, but using unprofessional language isn't going to help matters. And no amount of replacing u's with *'s makes it any more professional.

We've all had times when baffling problems has us ready to scream. I know, I look like I do from 26 years of pulling my hair out. But no matter how much technology sometimes upsets us (and in this case, it turned out to be a small syntax error on the part of the poster that the technology reported in a perfectly reasonable manner), it is important to remain professional in our public demeanor.

Thanks for listening; now everyone back to your sarsparillas while I finish cleaning the counter.
