Thanks Janet!

What a difference a few letters makes to the meaning! I'm a relative newcomer to the world of anagrams - seems fascinating! I'm blown away by some of the examples I've seen around here - I need to work a lot more on mine, before I dare to post again.

I'll be back, but probably not for a while!

Did I read somewhere that anagrams don't lie, Adrian? I sure hope the first one's a porky ;)
As for the rat-luring ... hmmm, I don't know yet! All-round trainee? We never finish learning, do we?

Thanks for the anagrams, anyway. I'll go away now and have a go at some more - I may be some time!

Good letters, at first glance. Let's see:

Elinor Laura Dent =
Dinner? All are out.
All return no idea.
One rule and trial.
No ritual learned.
To endure all rain.
End rational rule!
Under-relational.
All trade on urine.
An old urine alert!

Welcome

Yep, everyone's out when dinner is ready :( And I never know when they'll be back, either! As for the final ones - potty-training, I guess :(

I'll try and come up with something new, but it won't be easy to match the standard here!

Thanks for your welcome, Larry and everyone else who's been so friendly to a newbie.

All I can say is the first one's not far from the truth! The second sounds familiar :(
And the third, well ... fiction, sorry ;)

I'll be back when I've had time to come up with something original ... if that's possible!

Shorter than 50 characters:

Longer than 50 char:
Subject: First 50 chars followed by dots ...
Message: all anagrams + a few empty lines +

I hope you don't mind me advertizing a bit. It's not only to get publicity, it's also to have some info if something goes wrong. If there is a bug in Sater, you'd like to know that it is in Sater, wouldn't you?

Is the threshold of 50 chars OK?

Of course, people have to fill in their name. The forum system requires this. This will also give people the opportunity to preview their message and make changes if they want.

Ink, for I get patterns.
Ergo, fit skin-pattern.

To take prints:

So, pattern kit!

Brilliant work, Ben! And welcome to the Anagrammy Forum. I remember well your excellent Topical winner from late '99, "Mars Climate Orbiter = Meter miscalibrator!"

The only quarter-decent anagram I could find from the terrible letters in your name is rather rude, I'm afraid... apologies in advance.

A Dream Within a Dream, by Edgar Allan Poe -- Richard G, 19:26:55 04/24/02 Wed

A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow -
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand -
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep - while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?


Poe was to revisit the chosen theme, with the result that we can have a new version of *another* fine, poignant Poe poem, "A Dream", within "A Dream Within A Dream":

A DREAM

In visions of a shadowy night
I dream of glee departed -
Yet a waking dream of life and light
Has left me broken-hearted.

Oh! what is not a dream by day
To one whose eye is cast
Anew around him with a ray
Turned way onto the past?

One pious dream - one pious dream,
While my whole world were chiding,
Now soothes me as a festive beam
One lonely spirit guiding.

What though this light, in shady night,
So trembled from afar -
What can we see more purely white
In Truth's morning-star?

Can you clarify how the "charter" of this forum differs from alt.anagrams?

Is it just for posting anagrams that one wants considered for the anagrammies or is general discussion of anagramming welcome here too? If the latter, isn't it an exact alternative to alt.anagrams in every sense but with the added incentive of the awards?

And backed by the reflected blue.

Tell me how to earn her love.

As I was somewhat inactive at alt.anagrams,
I doubt I will be any more active here. Perhaps
the majority of posters to alt.anagrams will make
their way here, or perhaps they will stay there.
I do wish that you had considered just turning
the whole ball of wax over to someone else if you
were discouraged. I realize that a vast amount of
time and effort went into the changes in the last
year, but I doubt this schism is more likely to
sustain the Anagrammies than a new Awardsmaster.
I imagine that you are hoping for a new group to
form here from those willing and able to move.

We shall see.

Re: IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT (Late, as usual...) -- Mey K., 10:03:22 04/23/02 Tue


[Extra-long, you have been warned]

I don't usually stick my beak in, as a result of a poor ability to phrase my own
thoughts. If anyone considers all of this as BS, flame away.

I won't add to the anger already exhibited here towards Larry (though whether
the decision could have been discussed in a more 'diplomatic' way or not is
disputable); This is partly because I don't think adding more bile to this
group will help its wobbly condition, and partly because I can't say I don't
sympathize with the thought behind this idea. More on that below.

The more important issue I had to consider is the technical one. On one hand,
WTP and others have wisely brought up some things I haven't thought of at
first, mainly the disadvantages of a forum site vs. the ease of a
news-server. On the other hand, I can only post through Google myself, which
is slow and sometimes faulty.

As for a.a., I'm not blind to the fact that the group has changed a lot
through the (nearly) 4 years I've been enjoying it; it definitely changed in
the last few months. Regulars left and new members joined, posts and votes
reached new heights.

Some of the change's results were things I must admit weren't my favorite.
A lot of excellent stuff has been posted, true enough, but also many rants
(er, unlike this one), long threads that had nothing to do with the groups
or 'grams, personal disputes that should have been left to the e-mail arena
and a decrease in certain subjects I particulary liked, namely long anagrams
or spamagrams.

When it first gained strength, the group dubbed itself 'one of the friendlier
groups around'. A lack of any concrete rules inpired much creativity, but
what people might have not understood through the years is that this
friendliness should work both ways. I'll take the whole recent Rude 'grams
issue as an example.

For starters, I love to read rude anagrams. I also create many of them, some
outright filthy and smutty. You probably know this. They are, however, of
*rude subjects*, or ones that are somehow within that loose definition of
the Rude scene [yes, Ms. Anderson is unfortunate enough to be included in it,
for example ;) ]. What I don't understand are posts anagramming anything, be
it a plant, a textile company or the Russian word for 'bookshelf', into
things like 'Oh, cum whore eats cock in anal fun!'. I don't grasp the meaning or
use of these posts and shrug them away. If I *have* done any of them in the
past (though I can't remember any), then I apologize; I've obviously grew tired of them. It's baffling how others *haven't* grown tired of these immature (and dull) posts, but the fact that they didn't tone them down even after members expressed that they take offence and actually *quit* the group as a result, is terribly obtuse in my own eyes.
None of this is personal, BTW, I relate to a general trend in a.a. based on posts I've read, whose writers could be anyone for all I care. Sorry if I've stepped on some toes, I've allowed myself a personal opinion a year. :)

As for the contest, I feel it challenges some posters (me, at least) to
produce better and better gems. Some don't feel that way, that's fine by me.
I feel a nomination or an award are very welcomed sorts of praise, and
members' contributions certainly deserve them - and, I must say, still
believe that includes the forum *and* the alt.anagrams members as well. Though, I must say, even if the contest dies, the forum still has its appeal.

I enjoy alt.anagrams immensely, of course. I certainly feel it's my home on
the net; I've always loved its group dynamics and it's my daily supplier
of some wonderful and apt anagrams.

It was obvious for a while, though, that some sort of separation of the
group from the contest was inevitable. As painful as it may be, that *could*
mean the death of one of them. A solution was necessary; and, though its way
of execution is arguable and it left me with many questions (which I will
e-mail Larry pronto), at least someone got up and tried to pull it off.

Lastly, I feel I cannot afford to lose any more members' contribution,
especially if they are RG's (also a cherished and insightful friend), Janet's, and indeed Larry's. To enjoy their anagrams and input, and considering all of the factors above, I see the only solution for me right now is to post to both the group and the forum. The exact manner of this I haven't decided yet; it's not such a hassle for me as I use Google. I shall do so at least until a new solution presents itself.

Do what you will. But if this thread continues, it should remain intelligent
and even-minded (as some members exhibited) and, er, friendly, where-ever you
can. We earned that reputation, for fuck's sake. Oh shit, I've ruined the
whole thing. :)

I guess I'll have to wait for more news on the subject - if they haven't
already presented themselves while I was blabbing away.

My reply to alt.anagrams reposted here. -- Larry Brash, 00:54:29 04/23/02 Tue

I was expecting some negative reactions to my recent announcement, but the savagery of some of the comments has taken me somewhat by surprise. I have waited a few days to get my thoughts together.

The most vocal and sarcastic of the critics are those who have removed themselves, often quite publicly, from any involvement in the Anagrammy Awards. I therefore feel disinclined to answer their criticisms. I will however attempt to address the concerns of the more level-headed, less emotional critics.

I feel that it is important to clarify the background to this decision.

The last 12 months in this group has been a progressively less enjoyable experience for me. There has been a level of ill feeling that I had never witnessed before in my almost 5 years here. Several times, I have tried to settle things down, but with no lasting effect. Simple requests to slow down on nomming, or to ease off of crudity, were met with a remarkable degree of hostility. Frequent and unfair (IMHO) criticism and abuse of my right hand man, Richard, has become intolerable to several of us.

It is not a case of taking our ball and going elsewhere, it is more not be willing to put up with abuse. Personally, I often feel taken for granted, when it comes to the Awards. Many of you have been very generous in your expressions of gratitude for our running the Anagrammies. Alas, others appear to have little appreciation for the efforts involved.

This was an incredibly difficult decision to make and made with great regret. I have loved this group, but not for some time. I have lost interest in anagramming in the recent atmosphere.

Those who are regulars here will have seen the signs that eventually things would come to a head and that a split would be on the cards. Richard and I looked at many options in recent months. We considered setting up a new newsgroup, possibly moderated, but this was a lot harder than we imagined. The idea of a web-based forum was new to me, but appeared to be very simple to set up. That was the direction that we chose 2 weeks ago.

I acknowledge that there are some disadvantages with this style of forum, but I had hoped the people would at least have an open mind and give it a try. Yes, it was tested by Richard, Janet and myself before opening. Even this is being interpreted as malevolent. I could have removed all these test posts, but I saw no need for such a paranoid guilty reaction. Even the choice of the day of announcement seems to have some special meaning. I had spent several late nights make changes and Saturday was the first opportunity to announce it.

My only regret is that we did not have a more open discussion about this in the group, but the reaction would have been pretty much as I have witnessed in recent days. Frankly, I did not feel up to it. I am sorry that I have upset some people for whom I have great respect, but hopefully, they may understand my position.

The bottom line is that the Anagrammies have moved, but there are three possible scenarios for their future.

1. They continue at the new forum.

2. They die completely (very much on the cards given how I am feeling currently).

3. They are taken over by remaining alt.anagrams members. Many of you would have the expertise, but whether you would have the time or commitment to the awards is another issue. They are bloody hard work to do well, and impossible to do on your own (you will not be flooded with volunteers to help you either). If you are interested or masochistic, you may like to read my job description that I complied a few weeks ago: ../awardsmaster.html

A few final thoughts in answer to some of the posts.

alt.anagrams will survive, William. It was a fun place to be before I ever (foolishly) suggested we have an Anagram of the Month Competition back in March 1998. Thank you for your thoughtful and balanced critique. BTW, We did have a link to Google Groups since last year (you must have missed it).

Anna, thanks for your kind words. While the papacy of Avignon may not have survived, they do make great wines in Chateauneuf de Papes.

Tom, thanks for looking at the potential positives of the forum. My apologies if my style had become more autocratic in recent times. It was not meant to be. That grew out of frustration.

Finally, I found being likened to a fascist deeply offensive. I had thought more highly of the writer than that.

[META] Is the new forum a Good Idea? -- Brian Young, 02:41:33 04/21/02 Sun


Hi, all,
I'm a longtime lurker and Anagrammy voter in alt.anagrams -- many of you will remember me as the subject of one of Richard G's early grams, viz.: "The Brian = in the bar"; far fewer of you will remember my one nomination (a readaptation of Linus's speech from Luke at the end of _A Charlie Brown Christmas_; anagram of two Richard G's source texts). Even fewer will remember me posting under a different e-mail address, which has since become defunct.
At the time this message is written, I believe myself to soon be the fifth person to post on the new forum and the second non-beta tester. (Also the first American.)
Larry's post in alt.anagrams ("IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT") came as a total surprise to me. I saw no discussion nor even much desire for a new forum (I am aware that some people complained about missing posts, but I hadn't realized that anyone was so troubled by it as to want the alt.anagrams system replaced). Up until Maurice's recent post, I hadn't even realized that any controversy existed in the newsgroup, and it appeared to me that it was quickly and levelheadedly defused. Now I wonder whether that controversy played any factor in the decision for the change.
I can't say that I think the new forums are a Good Idea. The sole benefit, really, is to help those who post through Google or other poor newsreaders (the concept of an "integrated website" doesn't appeal to me at all, and the advantage(s) of an "integrated website" is/are completely lost to me).
Is that single benefit enough to abandon the newsgroup system and its abilities (killfiling, easy crossposting, ability to read through newsreaders, marking read messages as unread for future perusal, sorting by date/sender/subject)? Not to me.
I dislike the VoyForum system and will not spend the extra time to read it when alt.anagrams is much easier for me to read in my newsreader. I read messages in approximate order of posting, not by thread, and the VoyForum system arranges messages by most recently updated thread, not by message.
WTP's idea of a separate alt.anagrams.anagrammy newsgroup strikes me as a good one -- one can crosspost NOMmed anagrams into the separate newsgroup, and discussions along the lines of "who gets the NOM?" can be pushed over there. It would be much easier, IMO, to trawl for nominations in a separate newsgroup than in either the alt.anagrams group proper or the Anagrammy Awards VoyForum.
And there appears to be no search function on the VoyForum.
I will continue to follow the alt.anagrams newsgroup unless it becomes solely focused upon rude 'grams or dies out or both. I will follow the VoyForum only to check on the progress of this thread and any similar threads posted by other alt.anagrams correspondents.

This may well be my last message read by some of you. Larry, Richard G, and Janet B, I've greatly enjoyed reading your anagrams over the past few years; I'm sad to see you go.
However, I cannot with a good conscience vote for the Anagrammies if the anagrams of alt.anagrams contributors will not be included. At a point at which alt.anagrams is fully supplanted by the VoyForum, I will consider voting once more.

I haven't really had a chance to assess the impact this move will make, but I think I agree pretty much with all you have said here, Brian!

At my workplace, a new intranet has just been unleashed, and I was so annoyed that the attributes so clearly advantageous in the google style of postings (sorting by date/poster etc) have not been incorporated. The forum mechanism which they chose is quite similar to this site.

Anyway, I will not let it reduce my 'gramming pleasure.

regards to all the contributors, who make visiting the site worthwhile :)

It's in Michael Curl's Dictionary of Anagrams. I didn't see it in the Anagrammy Awards Hall of Fame, or AG.
