    If anyone wants to join in, feel free, but try to keep any outright author bashing to a minimum.

    In essence, you copy the previous post, and add your own additions (in script format). Make comments as if you were watching a really bad movie with friends, and you shouldn't go too far wrong. Another explaination can be found here, in the first two paragraphs.

    The next post will contain material to try this out on, and I'll include some examples for comments and formatting.

    Or, if you think this material is junk, PM me with a link to something better.
