Can we improve RC #1?

Sure we can.

First, we can turn that fragment into a complete sentence.

Next, we can make it positive and remove the word not

Finally, we can tell the reader what exactly we want

"I only accept books that come from non-smoking homes."

Bad idea for RCs.  Too controversial.  Maybe this will work better for Letters.  Bye.

You shouldn't be mentioning other members names... this is a no no ...

As for RC's ...  If I had an allergy that could kill me, I'm supposed to accept the book anyway?  I don't think so ...

Janet I think you were talking about Catt.  If you were to search the forum and find Catt's words about plastic wrap then I think you would find (as I did) that she wants to be credited for her words.  Anyway I only opened this thread after encouragement from others.  It was a bad idea about a subject that was too controversial so this is now a discontinued topic.

There are plenty of other RC topics to post to.

Dan (for Marilyn)

Laura, you didn't get to read the RC about no pet lobsters?  :))
