Please don't suggest that I'm upset by Mr. Rain, I just don't like lying.NDA hasn't, to my knowledge, been involved in lying - and I'm not sure we can assume s/he is a regular blogger, or do you want to draw the mods attention to it?

I accept that, in a previous incantation, they were a tad objectionable but it would seem they have learned from the error of their ways and simply want to play on the Beach with other froggers. It seems Noisette D Agneau is a regular blogger who has, for some reason best known to themselves, suddenly decided (yet again) to take on another identity yet this doesn't seem to upset you. Perhaps there's just a lot of it about!
