Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Eww - I think that "obligatory" bit is torture.  My first school did that.  They gave up on me after I threw up on a teacher's shoes in 1st grade.  

That said, I probably could've used some manners enforcement.  My first civilized boyfriend had to teach me to properly hold a fork in my teens.  I'm still uncomfortable in nice restaurants.

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes
