The long-awaited day has come.

Twitter, the 200 million user microblogging service, has filed for its initial public offering. Fittingly, the only public acknowledgement came in the form of a simple tweet.

"Long-awaited"? Wait, people actually waited for this?

Must not have a lot going on in their lives.

It's not my website, so I can't fix it. I promise to never offer any help to you again, though. Sorry to have offended. ;)

I do take offense to someone calling me a dick when I did nothing wrong. You're being your usual douchebag self. Go f--k yourself.

It's possible that dealing with my many grandchildren has led me to favor patient explanation rather than insults. How would they ever learn manners otherwise? ;-)

I encounter a distressingly large number of people in forums that seem to have missed the benefits of a patient grandparent. Perhaps that's why I rather like Twitter - it's hard to squeeze off a really nasty insult in 140 characters. *shrugs*

I did not say you. I was not offended and you have nothing to be sorry about. You simply misinterpreted what I said.

When someone takes the time to try to help you, an appropriate response is "thank you". An inappropriate response is "go fix it for me".

When someone points out that you have been rude, an appropriate response is "I'm sorry". An inappropriate response is "you can't read".

Until you learn the basics of social interaction, you will likely struggle to succeed in any endeavor that requires playing well with others.

You'll note that I did not tell you where to go or what to do to yourself when you get there. This is because I intend this to help you (though I will probably still choose to ignore you in the future, as I said), not to offend you. However, you can take it as you will.

Hope you have a pleasant evening.
