I just looked more closely and realized that I read it correctly. Hmm!

I don't think we have a thread for misread usernames, so I'm putting it here.

For months, I read you as Liquid ARM-BAR (and thought, ooh, a wrasslin' fan)
And how is that working out for you?

Ha, that's awesome!  Yes, I can do an arm bar, but in fact my name is a genus of tree.

Reviving this thread.

I still read that title as "Ventilation and Flirtation", only to be sadly disappointed.

Me, too.

That's why I started a "Lonely Hearts Club" thread, here!'

   http://thefora.org/index.php?topic=2574.msg84296#msg84296

And then when I went to look for the link, just now, I discovered that smallcleanrat had started a similar one much longer ago (Oct/2020), here:

   http://thefora.org/index.php?topic=1849.msg48198#msg48198

It ran for 6 pages and the last post was on July 19 of this year...and I had posted to it, as well.

So much for my brain cells!!

Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Reprove not a scorner, lest they hate thee: rebuke the wise, and they will love thee.

Give instruction to the wise, and they will be yet wiser: teach the just, and they will increase in learning.

Wouldn't you agree, though, that flirtation in the teaching thread is much more salacious and therefore much more interesting than flirtation in the general discussion thread?

Hmmmm.....

I suppose it depends on the object of the flirtation. But, yes, indeed, it could be.

In fact, is that one of the losses to faculty from Covid isolation measures? Reduced opportunities for flirting among the faculty?

Hmmm...
