Perhaps it would be safer not to read this forum at all....

That is highly debatable.

(Incidentally, re your signature, is it better to be a permanently pleasantly surprised pessimist, or a permanently unpleasantly surprised optimist?)

Is a pessimist ever pleasantly surprised? Is the optimist ever unpleasantly surprised for long?

Safer perhaps but not nearly so entertaining. And why would I want to deprive myself of your ready wit?

Given that things always turn out better (or no worse) than the pessimist expects, and always turn out worse (or no better) than the optimist expects, surely both always are...

What about an optimistic/pessimist? Hope for the best but prepare for the worst.

They're in the worst of both worlds. Always have their hopes dashed, and have wasted time/money/effort preparing for a bunch of stuff that never happens...

In the event that no-one else posts to the thread, either from common courtesy, or inability.

But in that case there is no later post. And we clearly know that there is a later post.

Anyway, what is this "common courtesy" of which you speak. Whenever I type it into Google I just get the number 404 back....

You see it as a waste of time/money/effort but what if the individual sees it as time/money/effort well spent?

Albeit, again, briefly.

Are you having problems with your back? is that why it keeps getting set? I do hope it's nothing too serious.

So we have an individual whose hopes are continually dashed, and see wastage as positive. I foresee one of three possibilities: 1: extensive psychiatric treatment, or 2: foreclosure due to lack of funds from overspending on unnecessary items, or 3: they are an economist.
