Just back from the YouTube trenches (actually, commenting on YouTube is more like battling Orcs in the Pellinore Fields, but at least I know that roses are flowering in Picardy... and that it's in France... so the more worldly metaphor will do.) So...
A few weeks ago I thought I got a positive reply to a derogatory comment, but it was ambiguous so I asked:
'Does this mean I have an ally?'
Tonight she replied:
'Haha. lol. No.'
Oh, well. And she had such a nice name, too.
