I quit reading the jokes on another forum when they all were posted using members names as the characters in the jokes. I see that it has now spilled into this forum. Am I the exception, or do others dislike this procedure?
Followed by post 7 by Iddee:

I am not offended, nor do I think it is meant to be harmful. I just think it takes away from the original joke and distracts me from the joke's real meaning. I know most of the posters and the names used. All are great guys, just poking fun at each other. I just think the joke means more if my little one track mind only has to follow one subject.
Of course, as I said in the OP, it may just be my senile, old, grumpy ways. That's why I wanted more opinions.
There just seems to be a discrepency there. Both statements to me contradict each other a bit, so I wonder WHY the poll? <<<<
Because my compliant is in the mode of writing, not the contents or intentions.
Is is lite reeding postes with many wirds mispeled.
You have to think about what each word was meant to be, then go back and read the post for it's meaning. With the jokes, I am concentrating on the people, rather than the story, and it just makes it harder to read.
Maybe it's just my dumbness.
I know the guys and know it is all in fun, but it distracts from the readability of the joke. I was not trying to say it was derogatory toward the other person. I know it wasn't.
Brian, I have known BB on different forums for a long time. I have never seen him post an "offensive" post about anyone other than an idiot killing bees for the fun of it.
