I, WB2EKK, say:


or more colorfully:


I realize that I am not James Thurber, or even Dave Barry, but I didn't realize people 

needed "smileys" to figure out when I was being humorous. But I did get a few other 

notes along the same vein - maybe I've been writing for the Government too long. 

Congratulations to AD1C and WX3N for seeing the humor.

My note on N2RM was intended to be humorous: I operate at W3LPL, want LPL to beat 

RM, etc.

This dependence on emoticons to determine if something is serious or not is dangerous. 

I hope you guys haven't been taking Rush Limbaugh or Ross Perot seriously!!??!!

For what it's worth, a Finnish company specializing in viruse detection 
software says that both the "Good Times" virus and another titles XXX-1 
are figments of the collective 'Net imagination.  Nevertheless, I doubt 
I'll be titling any messages "Good Times..."
