RARA-AVIS: Re: On Noir

Okay, when I wrote my last post encouraging Jim Beaver to stay with this group despite the uncivility of this definition war, I said I skipped the recent postings. And I have for the most part (although I noticed that Jim Beaver's post was prompted by one of your's) until I read the one below.

Sigh. In years past when you would wade into the definition debate with a billy-club, you would dress comments like the one below as if they were tongue-in-cheek. Please note that if you do not want to seem completely boorish, you need to make that tongue a little more apparent in your cheek. If you think this is funny, it isn't. If you are serious, you should blush.

You and I agree on many subjects and I've purchased and enjoyed your books but, my goodness, enough is enough.
