    I know you are not a Yankee and come from Adelaide.

    And discussing the Scottish tradition of Flyting is not a cover for insults.

    In fact we can't understand Scottish politics or Scottish culture or the Scottish personality without understanding Flyting.

    So in the interests of cultural and personal understanding, would you be kind enough to restore this thread to Other Psychology Topics so that all may read it.

    People like myself who enjoy reading medieval literature might have heard of Flyting, but I dont' think the average Glaswegian pubgoer is any more likely to be familiar with the concept than the average American or Australian pubgoer. "The Does This Occur to the Average Bloke Down the Pub?" test being one of the most valid ways to measure whether something is a true national characteristic, naturally.

    With respect to you, Trinity, you can go to Granny's 90th birthday party without bringing your own Zimmer frame.

    Insults? Whatever next.
