    Will,

    Your blog intro is about as informative as a Beckett play - 'bing bang bong' seems a suitable repost! Good eh!

    New words come and go it is just with the internet some bright spark measures their growth (but rarely, curiously, their demise!). Tweeting as a vogue method of communication is, in my view, about as articulate and informative as an adolescent's grunt! Don't tweet - say something interesting and if you haven't anything interesting to say, stay schtum!

    I like this post - too many people, especially playwrights, discount the simple notion of giving pleasure. 'Bout time they were reminded.
