FOO-DIPR- Forevereternal Order of DI Proof Readers

Postby LittleTiger on Sat Nov 22, 2008 1:41 am

Welcome Proof Readers!

It has come to my attention that the Brick Layers have formed there own brothahood and have used our name in vein. Thus, it is time for the Proof Readers to Unite!

Forthwith, it is our duty to ensure that all posts by FOO-DIB are perfectly formed, grammatically correct and properly punctuated. Any FOO-DIPR member that suspects a FOO-DIB of improper posts, must immediately issue a cease and desist order or a :fight: challenge.

Unite and Fight the Blight!

Indeed. We Proof Readers should stick together.

That we, the union known as The Fraternal order of Dharma Initiative Brick layers, (here out to be known as FOO - DIB) send this cease and desist letter to the Forevereternal Order of DI Proof Readers, (here out to be known as Foo-DIPR). This is sent for the following reasons;

1. Entering FOO-DIB union property without union permission.

2. Posting in an un-friendly and non supportive tone.

3. Not paying the $1,000 temporally dues membership that is required by all non FOO - DIB Di members.

4. For drinking our beer and not putting the toilet seat down.

5. Any and all other discoveries made after this notice is sent.

We, the union members of FOO - DIB demand that you cease and desist all mannerism that would be taken as demeaning and contradictory to our union code.

You have 12.324 hours to comply with this request. If our demands our not met, you will find yourself lacking cover and protection from the elements that this environment can bring.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Namaste

Scirillo,

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

When I have finished laughing, I shall return with suitable response!

Please note that we are known as FOO-DIPR, thus your treatise fails, due to improper use of capitilization you are awarded :oops: .

scirillo wrote:1. Entering FOO-DIB union property without union permission.


Argument fails due to the original infraction committed by FOO-DIB by inferring derogatory connotations with invocation of name "Proof Readers" within said union "property" of FOO-DIB. Said infraction requiring response, thus invitation to respond can be inferred, thus permission granted. :nod:

2. Posting in an un-friendly and non supportive tone.


Since response was due to derogatory comment, one can infer that FOO-DIB started the unfriendly tone. :nono

3. Not paying the $1,000 temporally dues membership that is required by all non FOO - DIB Di members.


You have not issued public notice to this effect. Thus, per FOO-DIPR Internal and Confidential Agreement, you are assessed a fine of $1 plus costs of $2,500 per minute that you spent within the confines of FOO-DIPR Territory

4. For drinking our beer and not putting the toilet seat down.


:hmm: We do not drink beer, and have no need to put the toilet seat up. Fined $1,000 for blatant fabrication.

5. Any and all other discoveries made after this notice is sent.


You are hereby :ban: from all FOO-DIPR territories and thus restricted to "read only" status.

We, the union members of FOO - DIB demand that you cease and desist all mannerism that would be taken as demeaning and contradictory to our union code.


Because our responses will be in the form of written words, no mannerisms will be involved. Thus, you may not infer demeaning or contradictory mannerisms to our responses to your incursions, or infractions of the FOO-DIPR Code of Conduct.

You have 12.324 hours to comply with this request. If our demands our not met, you will find yourself lacking cover and protection from the elements that this environment can bring.


As Proof Readers, you will note that our services are required before any Contract can be consummated. Thus, it is with great pride that I must advise you that all contracts for engagement of Brick Layers will include the terms dictated by FOO-DIPR, which obviously will include that you, FOO-DIB may not impede FOO-DIPR members from reasonable protection from the elements. Failure to comply with contractual obligations will force FOO-DIPR members to ensure that all future Contracts presented for Proof Reading will delete all assignments of projects to Brick Layers. :dots:

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.


Promptness is our middle name. :D

Namaste


Ditto.

As a proud Dharma proof reader, I hereby request membership in your organization.

If there is a plan to create specialized officers, as the bricklayers' union is doing, I would like to volunteer to be your Special Officer for Apostrophe Preservation (SOAP).

Let's "clean up" apostrophe misuse! :nono

In my official capacity as FOO-DIPR Honorary Spokesperson, it is my duty to respond to all notices, infractions and incursions as they are noted and where and when they are posted.

I regret to inform you that the assessment of 3 bricks in fines shall not be possible. My Office is made of Steel and Glass and lots of concrete. I must also point out that your 2nd notice, again, contains a misspelled word (occurres instead of occurs), thus you are awarded :oops: for this infraction.

Best regards,

LT

Welcome LostMyMind!

You are hereby assigned Officer of the Red Pen and shall henceforth judiciously carry out the duties of that office with great aplomb and dignity.

Your first duty will be to red-line any and all contracts containing reference to projects assigned to FOO-DIB members. This due to the continued and abhorrent infractions committed by FOO-DIB member, scirillo.

Proof Reader reporting for duty, I have band-aids for paper cuts and those rubber finger tip thingys for turning pages. :) I am a Psychologist on my other DI account so maybe I could offer emotional support to anyone who has suffered at the hand, or words, of the brickheads bricklayers.
