      Jeez, talk about getting offended easily, you obviously don't have a sense of humor at all. Personally, I am not offended, nor am I bothered by the comments made by the three of you. I wrote you privately, since that was more about your show, and less about this, so I felt it didn't belong here. I think you should check that definition for yourself, Pat, as there is nothing there that says you have to follow every sentence with a space. This is the first time I have seen you post, Pat, using the good old proper formatting of a letter, and it is just fine with me. I can read it just fine and there are no unnecessary spaces breaking up the message or the intent. Can you find it anywhere on the Internet that states it is good form to post spaces between each sentence? I doubt it.
      The fact is, some people here need to have post broken into small segments to hold their attention. I get that, and don't have a problem with it. I just think it is a little sad that society has come to that. But that's life. If you have a problem with anything I have said, I'm sorry. Try to have a sense of humor about life sometimes, and maybe it will go down a little easier. As for my eyesight, it is completely and totally fachizzled beyond belief. But thanks to these new fangled things called eyeglasses, I see just fine. That's until my Cockatoo steals them, then I'm blind as a bat. Whoa! There's a new topic for my podcast! :) Anyway, you should try these things. They do wonders for reading things.

      Lighten up, people!!

      Give it up Dan. Ed obviously offends easily (You should've seen what he sent to
      me off list when I asked about one of his paragraphs being in large fonts.
      Without quoting him as that would be against netiquette - See the definition
      @ http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/netiquette to see what it means Ed), he
      basically said I must have eyesight problems if I couldn't read his email.
      As most everybody here knows, I don't normally I don't post in this manner, but
      I thought I'd do so in this case to show what Ed's messages look like to the
      rest of us (Assuming you can even read it that is) since Ed has gone from being
      civil & like everybody else here to being ridiculous and a wuss.
      Now what's it like to be the RECIPIENT of a post like yours Ed?
      Who has the eyesight problem NOW??
      Now, as I said previously, let's get back to podcasting before we inspire
      someone to start a podcast on netiquette (As well as incur the wrath of the mods
      too :) ).

      Ed, nobody was insulting you. We're all compadres here.

      A friendly suggestion was made that you write in paragraphs, with blank lines
      between them. Your initial note was so crammed together that I gave up about a
      third of the way into it.

      See? This kind of writing is much easier to read, and it doesn't take any
      longer to do.

      By the way, how can you talk for a half hour a week about parrots? My topics
      are treasure hunting and adult slowpitch softball, and after two years it's
      difficult for me to come up with new ideas for biweekly five-minute shows!

      Best,

      ---Dan, http://danhughes.net

        Really? I never would have thought about either of those, no offense.

        There are actually six million bird owners in the US alone, so my market is actually fairly large. Most of those people are female, average income of $50,000+ per year, with broadband Internet access. But getting them to actually listen is still a trick in itself.

        I have 25 years of experience with all sorts of birds, from Budgies to Macaws, in breeding, raising, proper care, first aid, and so on. While I am working on a book, it has nothing to do with parrots, except there might be one in it.

        I live in Florida, so I imagine your treasure hunting podcast would be of an interest to a few people down here. I see those guys every day, if I am on the beach that day.

        For me, I don't know if I could take another thing in the house that beeps. My birds already do a great imitation of the phone, microwave, and doorbell. I don't want to give them anymore material in that department.

        Ed: "Adult slow-pitch softball? Treasure hunting? Those are some unique areas to talk about!"
        -------------------------------------------
        I think parrots are a more unique topic than either of mine!

        There are several thousand treasure hunters in the US (and by "treasure hunters" I mean mainly folks who use metal detectors to find coins and jewelry), and over a million softball players.

        I've written books on both topics, and the podcasts help to sell the books.

        I also do a weekly old-time radio podcast which I make no money from. I started it as a show for our local "reading for the sight-impaired" radio station, and I decided to put it on the internet too. The work is already done, so why not.

          Ed,

          Passive aggressiveness is an art form, so, you're doing it wrong. Leave it
          to the professionals.

          I like the show. I like it a lot. It sounds good on my computer speakers,
          which are cheap. The theme song seemed strange at first, but it actually
          suits it very well. Your voice is soothing, and it is obvious that the
          subject matter is important to you.

          The negatives, if you want to call them that:

          The blog link took me nowhere. Probably a Turkish hacker.

          There does not seem to be a way to play an episode from the site. A visitor
          should not have to subscribe to sample the show. If there is a way, it is
          cleverly hidden.

          Otherwise, great work. It is obviously a labor of love, and I hope it is all
          you want it to be.

              Hi Paul,

              Yeah, our hacker friend did a number on the site, and I am still working to reconnect things to their rightful places, so the blog is still not in the right place. I do now have the ability to play the podcast from the site at www.parrothut.com/TPH/ which is the wordpress page for the podcast. I haven't been able to figure out how to link that in. I guess I could direct the links to that page, which I did for a while. I would prefer to use that page anyway, but I thought people could play the podcasts directly from the feedburner page. I know there was a link, but I've never tried it. I am working on the blog issue, and that should be corrected this weekend. Thanks for the critique.

              Regards,
              Ed

              Passive aggressiveness is an art form, so, you're doing it wrong. Leave it

              I like the show. I like it a lot. It sounds good on my computer speakers,
              which are cheap. The theme song seemed strange at first, but it actually
