Have you come across the concept named "humour"?

Or can it be possible that you really believed that Richard Heathfield
was suggesting insulting people in rec.music.class ical?

Or are you just a troll?

Wrong.

Nope.

``Slurs'' does have a different meaning in a musical
context, but not ``generic slurs''.

I was talking about generic slurs, not "generic slurs".

With or without the quotes, Chris Dollin is absolutely right
in saying that generic slurs have no place in any newsgroups.
Suggesting otherwise, like you did, is an implied incitement to
violate netiquette, and worse yet, you were doing this to
rec.music.cla ssical, which you were not a regular of and indeed
I have doubts as to whether you have read their FAQ before
typing ``rec.music.cla ssical'' above. IMHO, your action was
absolutely unjustifiable.

Look up the _other_ meaning of the word "slur".

I am fully aware of the musical meaning (in fact I wrote to
Richard Heathfield above: ```slurs' does have a different meaning
in a musical context''); however, when ``slur'' is preceded by
``generic'', the musical meaning ceases to apply. Try searching
for +"generic slur" +music on Google. Ask your musical friends
for independent verification(s) , preferably, both music theorists
and performers.

Even if you remain unconvinced, it should be clear to you
that Chris Dollin's use of ``generic slur'' is unambiguous (in
the disparaging sense) and since Richard Heathfield is replying
to Chris Dollin's post, his usage of the term should follow that
of Chris' (otherwise it is a fallacy of equivocation).
Or a joke, which it pretty obviously was (with Richard's
followup to your response being a continued stretching of the
offered leg).

If we're going to obsess over the details of wording, may I point
out that I didn't say "generic slurs": I said "generic slurs like
this", referring to the slur in the earlier post. And I didn't
say they "have no place in any newsgroups": I said that /I/
didn't think they /should/ have a place in this (or any other,
really) newsgroup. Your:
>>With or without the quotes, Chris Dollin is absolutely right

over-states my position.

If it was a joke, then Richard should have inserted a
smiley or two in his followup.

If netiquette reminders are seen as trolls then I think I

I /strongly/ disagree, and believe that there is no such
obligation. (I am of course biased, since I too generally
avoid smilies in postings & mailings.)

Then don't complain when you're misinterpreted. A particular sentence can
have a dozen meanings depending on intonation, tone of voice, etc. -- smileys
and short phrases such as "haha" provide clarification for the written word.

When the human mind encounters a sentence which could constitue an ambiguous
parse, it tends not to notice -- it simply takes the first meaning which
comes to mind. This is problematic for the written word, which lacks
intonation, tone of voice, etc., which would otherwise indicate the intended
meaning.

When writing a sentence, if you believe that it is necessary to convey tone
of voice, etc., then it's pertinent to use smileys and the like.

Yup. Those who understand, understand. If some people can't grok it without
a smiley, that's their problem, not mine (or yours).

It's the transmitter's responsibility to transmit intelligibly.
It's the receiver's responsibility to interpret intelligibly.

By not clarifying the tone in which a sentence should be spoken, you're
neglecting your resonsibility as transmitter, and forfeiting your right to
complain when people misinterpret you.

I have to create a stored procedure to purge "x" # of records from a table. I have two tables (script below): Schedule ScheduleHistory I need to purge records out of ScheduleHistory. The problem is that the # of records that needs to be "kept" is dynamic, and stored in the Schedule table. So all records in ScheduleHistory should be purged, except for the most recent "x" number of records.
