    Given a non-refusable choice between wasps and yellow jackets, I would select wasps ... but not by a large margin.

    A brush for cleaning my grill. I wasnít looking to wipe them out, just give them the subtle message that they should find a new neighborhood.

    Ugh. I hope they aren't a wanker. I don't want to deal with people thinking I'm a wanker.

    So nothing prevents people from creating new IDs like "Boston Devil", "Boston Devil", "Boston Devil", etc. etc.? If I was creating uniqueness rules for IDs, my software would remove all spaces before running such checks on new IDs.

    Edit: Well, the original text of my post had increasing number of spaces between the two words of each ID ... but I guess the board software removes consecutive spaces. Which I guess is a Good Thing.

    As someone who is quite possibly "Crusty", I still type two spaces at the end of a sentence, just as I was taught in typing class by Brother Michael in the previous century. And of course, I am a charter member of the Oxford Comma Fan Club, the proper usage of which shouldn't even be under consideration...

    As you were... (as long is it's not on my lawn, which needs cutting!)

    PS2: In the spirit of inclusion, the Committee will entertain discussion on the "something needs <verb>ing" construction favored in the dialect of some people native to inbred areas of southwestern Pennsylvania. If it's good enough for George Harrison, it should be good enough for yins:

    "I look at the floor, and I see it needs sweeping..."
    "Quality is not an option!"

    Where I live a more common example of <verb>ing would be, "He needed killing."

    My thought exactly.

    In North Georgia, thatís a defense to a murder charge. Or so the stories go.
