    That’s right folks: Sliderule is TownCrier

    I guess we have all heard the saying: "he only opened his mouth to change feet" – well, this week’s special mention goes to Sliderule aka TownCrier. Basically, while logged on as TownCrier he inadvertently posted in the "persona and style" of Sliderule. Oops!

    Aside from the obvious self-incrimination, it is worth noting the distinct similarities in grammatical & writing styles that exist between the two nics. By examining the recent posts of Sliderule/TownCrier, one will readily observe the following common traits:

    -- All posts by Sliderule & TownCrier lead with a blank line

    -- Distinctive hyphenated style (evident in TC post when in SR ‘voice’)

    -- Over use of imperatives (exclamations)

    -- No space following a comma or full-stop (see below)

    For example, 15 out of 44 lines posted by Sliderule/TownCrier in the incriminating thread contained this unmistakable grammatical error…. Moreover, this mis-punctuation occurred EVERY TIME a comma was present.
