    I just saw The Talented Mr. Ripley for the second time, and I think I picked up on a homosexual subtext.

    It's rampant in Highsmith's work and the film adaptations of it.

    Watch the British version of "Strangers on a Train," for example. Hitch doesn't even TRY to cover it up.

    Is that part of the experience?

    I seem to remember it being pretty blatant, so I think your probably did.

    Let's just say I will think twice before I play chess with someone in the bathtub again.

    That, in and of itself, is a good reason not to play chess in the bathtub with somebody.

    This user, GeterGeter (http://www.styleforum.net/member.php?u=50951)
    All 6 posts are just garbage/spam...


    You realize that the triangle/exclamation point is a good way of reporting spam, right? Just click on it and it goes right to the mods.

    It took me about three years to find this button myself (haha), but it makes reporting spammers much easier.

    Never noticed it, thanks. I'll use that in future.

    usually I just ignore this stuff and figure someone else will take care of it, but I've realized that if I don't do it, it may not get done.

    2 Months!!! That's the longest non-perma ban I've seen. Couldn't imagine a better candidate.

    Several posters have been given a full year off in the past.

    After a year off, do they even bother coming back?

    ^I'm glad for the break on Herr von Ataturkische. I initially called for a non-ban, but then today he just kept driving that train further into the gulley, even after I'd thought he'd smashed it just about as far as it could go.

    Maybe in that two months he can wade his way through "Rise and Fall of teh Third Reich" as well as a coupla Edmund White novels.
