    Can you share some tips and tricks as to how to keep a high thread count and not have them all be crap? It's so hard to find a balance between volume and quality.

    I thought he might have been through some sort of Grampy Bobby training program.

    They may have been on the same course but Gramps failed and FMF squeaked through with a C+

    Set your sights on at least a C+ and never give up no matter how fine the line becomes.

    "all of the tenured professors at this grade one school
    seldom if ever utilize alphabetic designations
    because they prefer the accuracy of numeric grading.
    since you have just enrolled in grade one school
    your first correspondence has earned .02 on a scale
    ranging from .01 to 100.01" ~child anon

    If he had then all his threads would be passive-aggressive trolling aimed at people who are unimpressed by him and thinly disguised as copy/pasted puerile quotations.

    Don't sweat it - that assessor failed the exam totally. I'd give you a B+.

    I thought that your C+ was rather subjective. Take a leaf from Kewpie's book.
