I know you were and it was clear (and I fully agree with you!). However I was using it as an example of the sort of comment to which a film maker may take offence.Jill Lampert wrote:Ghosh it is easy to say something which isn’t clear!
Tim, I was writing about myself as a film maker.
The comment is given and taken as advice. In the context of this particular conversation (you were replying to Peter who was feeling aggrieved about some of the comments he received) it could be taken to be advising Peter that he should give the matter thought. I realise that was not your intention and I doubt Peter really took it that way, but it is a possibility if someone is feeling particularly sensitive.Jill Lampert wrote: I am at a loss to know how I could possibly be interpreted as implying that someone (who, I wonder?) has not given thought to whether to make a film (which film, I wonder?) more interesting to a general audience.
Maybe I'm wrong.
Willy (with the added disadvantage of not having English as his first language) managed to express my thoughts so much better than I. Not for the first time.
