I think that Pesala was trying to make some sort of amusing connection to this thread click here

Unfortunately, titles like the one given by €dstow only work once and derivatives, like Pesala's, only act to diminish the impact of the original and fill up the forum pages with trivia. It is more unfortunate as the message in Mr Stow's thread is important and which contains some very wise words and advice which some previously potential readers will now ignore thinking it is of the same import as the rather meaningless thread from Pesala.

As one who was caught out a long time ago without a backup, I would urge you to read and heed €dstow's thread.

Humour has its uses. If the only intent is to make people laugh, then it is best avoided, but people do remember things that they enjoy, longer than things that they don't. When discussing a serious topic, as in €dstow's thread, there is no need for humour, as it would detract from the importance of the message. Thread titles are not something to lose sleep over — like backups — but still worth reminding people about, in the nicest possible way. Here, a stern lecture is NOT what is needed.
