Never mind. This poll debate is getting silly now.

Worthwhile polling or research gets at what they do, not what they say.
Quoted because I want to make sure I can find this next time I'm tempted to do something helpful.

"Tap, tap, tap." Is this microphone on?

it's superbowl sunday in america, nic.

i'm guessing that men are sitting around drinking beers, getting all feisty as they wait for the game to begin; happens every year in dd. the flame rate has already dropped off significantly since kick-off happened.

I think what's even funnier about this entire thread and others like it are the people rallying around the pros, up-in-arms about treating the pros badly. I don't see it at all. I see a couple people having a contrary opinion, and let's face it there is always another opinion.

Pretty much everybody is alligning with the pros. Do I see something that's not there? Pros can do anything because they're pros, right? No, pros are pros because what they do is better than everybody else. They try to convey the story in a way that will reach the reader. They make choices, those choices work. They continue making those choices, it continues to work. Rinse and repeat.

It's phenominal to have real life stars on this board with hands on realities. Thanks you guys, keep having your opinions and expressing because the community will benefit. We are all trying for the same thing, it helps to listen to people who have achieved it so we can emulate them with our own 'voice'.

Listen, I just rolled a fatty and flipped in Gerry Rafferty, baker street and I'm preparing to write a scene. Everybody else should find their happy spot, light up, or do whatever and start whittling your fingers to your knuckles and jump up during the guitar solo and be silly.

I should have guessed. My husband is home from work watching it as we speak. (He's American, bless him.)

Point is, keep it civil and on topic.

I love DDP !!!

I was trying to get away from here for a while to concentrate on life priorities, and then all these pros suddenly joined and things got a hell of a lot more interesting.

And now I find myself reading through these endless but fascinating threads instead of agonizing over a bitch of a translation assignment where super technical military lingo has to be translated into French.

(thread hijack: if anybody here has ever served in the French Foreign Legion or otherwise knows anything about the subject matter, please lend a desperate chick a helping hand so she can feel all Jacques Bauer-like and also pay her rent and feed her dog)

But seriously, I hope the new pro members stick around, this is all great stuff --especially when it leads to spirited debate. If everybody always agreed on everything, life would be boring indeed and there would be nothing to ever write about.
