It's difficult to know how this kind of play would be received by friends. In modern times its far easier, as there are so many web sites that have forums only too eager to offer insights. Sadly, I think such a boon reduces the oportunity for face-to-face communication skills. Not sure how to solve this one, other than to point it out, and hope anyone that reads this will take it on board. We live in wonderful, troubled times.
