Have you seen the message that appears after you make a post? The one that says "Thank you for posting"?

Well if prune was upgraded to a new version some intelligence could be added to that bit. A quick scan of the posting could provide a selection from a series of messages, with alternatives such as

"Why did you bother? :confused:"

"You didn't respond at all to his question."

"What a waste of time."

"Another one Tony? :rolleyes:"

"Message received. Automatically sending PM to Anthony Carn to elicit a humorous response :}"

"Not you again? :ugh:"

"Don't say that about a moderator. Post automatically deleted. :*"

"Jerricho, you really shouldn't talk about your mother in law like that."

"We had that link about two weeks ago :zzz:"

"Excellent post Onan. Well thought out, consise and completely discrediting the previous poster's thinly veiled mish-mash of half baked 'ideas'. :ok:"

I don't need that.I have Mrs J standing over my shoulder saying those sorts of things

"You're not post that crap?!"

"What the hell are you on about!"

"This is what you've spent all day doing!!!!"

"That Onan sounds like he knows what he talking about" (When she's had one too many to drink :p )

Spell checker would be nice. There is a famous Prooner from the North East of England who always elicits a grin with his posts, but also causes multiple wincing with the spelling.

A personality profile for each poster would be nice

"Vitriolic old git"

"Self-righteous, patronising old bag who is NEVER wrong"

"Reasonable, measured, sensible, perhaps a bit academic"

"Imposter - PPL posing as B747 Captain"

"Uncouth, uneducated, unwashed, loudmouth"

"Captain Geeky, Flightsim Airways"

Hansard -

How did you get my personality profile so right - I haven't even filled in one of your form thingys....

It's a new feature on trial at the moment. Every time you post we extract key words and expressions of emotion (amongst other things) to create the profile!!! No need for any form-filling!!

Hansard -

Well, I'm gobsmacked.

(Gobsmacked key word links - mouthy, violent, uneducated. But correct punctuation implies intellect and the fact that I'm posting a response implies sense of humour (?), empty life, poor sad bastard in front of PC rather than playing Bridge, saving the world, wooing wife, etc.)

Whew.:ok: :ok:

Just make sure they don't add extra items to the bill like drinks, desserts (or a couple of palm trees, hey Ozzy ;) )
