But why is it so humorless/personality-less? I've heard many people say this about WW. It's one thing to be professional, but when even threads of 100 messages don't have a single humorous or witty remark in them you begin to think 'used by humans or robots?'
Not of significance, but just interested what other people had to say.

I've heard many people say...
Many years ago I was sitting outside of a cafe on a very fine afternoon sipping a coffee or tea, chatting with a friend about the relative merits of mass popularity as a goal for a novelist.
All of a sudden a fight broke out between two large men and a smaller one. A crowd formed and some in the crowd cheered the larger men as they brutalized the smaller one.
My friend turned to me and said, "That's a perfect example of why you don't use people as a measure for what is right, wrong, successful or good."
"If you beat someone up there will always be some idiot to come up and applaud you. Are you going to believe that applause?"
"And what" he continued, "does that say about praise, adulation, popularity, and how much it's worth?"
Anyone remember or able to point to it (I'm sure the lady in question does ;)).
I, being a foodie of the first water (and in my own defense, a US'er, not a UK'er!) requested the recipe. Which of course caused some not so subtle jibes at my expense, being as "pot noodle" is to the UK'er what cup o' soup is to those of us here. But that's okay - I can laugh at myself with the best of them.
I actually do find posts outside of Foo which cause me to laugh, though I do have to state up front that my sense of humor is fairly far out and pretty sideways as well. In any case, the humor is there, it's just usually a more subtle side of funny....
