Might I suggest to the Editor that messages on this topic be put in the
same category as those on the authorship question?  Whatever connection
they might have had to Shakespeare has long since ceased to be the
case.  There are probably many other lists for which they are much more
appropriate.

[Editor's Note: While I do not consider this thread in the same category
as authorship, I do feel that the discussion has run its course and
should be taken off-line if anyone wishes to continue discussion it.

Dear Bill Arnold,

It SEEMS to me THAT what you taught THE young MAN in YOUR story WAS not
how TO write, BUT how to transcribe SPEECH. I can't quite SEE how THAT
accords WITH the analytic sensitivity of YOUR initial counselling
gambit: 'STOP.  Button it, and listen to me!' Nevertheless, as part OF
my own Professional Development, I have resolved TO employ these phrases
at future departmental meetings, to SAY nothing of my increasingly
frequent letters to the Inspectorate of the Inland Revenue. You will OF
course receive full CREDIT for them.
