should I or should I not use the word should in a post?  This forum's software has hi-lighted the word when I use it.  Is that some new PC thing?

How much should should a should chuck chuck, if a should chuck should chuck should?

I think you should ignore the warning. It's just an opinion.

It's also not a warning. It's the same technology the site uses for "sponsored words". I think Paul wanted to call attention to mis-use of the word. Of course not every use of the word is a mis-use.

Yeah, but i find it annoying to see the underlines. It's one thing when it actually links to information on a method or the like, so i'll grumble and accept it because may at least sometimes be of minor convenience. It's quite another when it's abused just to underline an opinion.

Well, it's the site owner's opinion, so....

Anyway, moved this to Ranch Office since it is a serious discussion and not drivel.

Abuse! Bait & Switch!

I understand he can do that and he is within his rights, etc, etc, etc. It doesn't make it any less annoying though.

Whatever.
 
I suggest huckleberry pie. But the only thing on the gluten free menu is this tiny ad:
