Just for information, I've reverted to my old forum name of Spiny Norman ( previously "Porpoise" on here ).

Welcome back! (As long as you don't think I'm Dinsdale!)

So porpoise is dolphinately gone?

An urchin necessity, it would seem. I'm glad the admin team was able to kelp out.

Fine by me - you're welcome under any name you care to use - but there's a disconnect between avatar and username. If you don't want to abandon the ocean altogether, perhaps you could use this:

The pelagic puns have me retching for my ginger supplement and my fisherman's friend.

Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
