    Ok so I was at work all day, till about 6:30 and I got this email from Roland J. Parker from hubpages. Im not sure what to make of it..Here's what it says...

    You would think you would offer a helpful suggestion rather than waxing critical since you're smarter than the average bear. You and the rest of your glee club.

    Ok, ahhh I don't recall saying something wrong and what does waxing critical mean. And whats he mean by glee club.

    Did anyone else get an email like this?

      I've heard of 'waxing lyrical' but not 'waxing critical'.

      In fact, when I do a Google search for waxing critical the first result is THIS THREAD.

        Oh that's funny. I went back and double checked my email and that's exactly how he spelled it. Maybe he will show up and tell me what it means.. Sounds rude though. lol

          A person can "wax philosophical", "wax lyrical"... A person can "wax critical", but I have never seen you do it.  In essence, "waxing" is going on, and on, about something.  Secondly, I am not much of a singer, but I would like to try out for the glee club! lol

          He is there.  He got mad because we teased him.  Are you sure it is the same guy?  He told us all to "get a life".

            What a strange dude. Posting an article as a thread and then getting their nose out of joint because they've been told they've posted their article as a thread.

    In the UK a glee club is slang for a small group who get together for no other purpose than to have fun. Often used critically.

      You didn't comment on it.  It was about Thawing a Turkey in 5 minutes, or something like that.

    I'm getting feeling here that no one knows why you got the email.  I'd either let it go or report it.
