Dear Pamela,As a Brit, it’s nice to see someone from ‘over the pond’ who’s got most of the information about Afternoon Tea correct for a change: I now live in Vinci, Italy (yes where Leonardo was born), and now offer afternoon tea to Italians in our home dining would take you to task on one item in your article,(there’s always a critic!) and that is about Cream Tea in which you say: “Cream Tea — A simple tea service consisting of scones, clotted cream, marmalade or lemon curd and tea.” Cream Tea traditionally consists of scones served with clotted cream and strawberry said that if people prefer to have their scones (and it’s pronounced ‘skons’ as far as I’m concerned),with an alternative, I have no problem with that, it’s a free world (supposedly)!For example I sometimes fill my Victoria Sponge with lemon curd instead of the traditional raspberry jam and fresh raspberries both of which balance well with a nice cup of sweet Luck with the book!
The moments tab is condescending; the reporting feature is half-assed and easily abused, as is banning; notifications include useless information like “someone liked a reply to you.” Likes were better as faves. Live-updating reaction counts are distracting; lists are awkward; self-replies mean tweets move around in your timeline as you’re trying to read them; multi-user threading is impossible to parse now so everyone thinks they’re being insulted by their own team. Verification carries functional benefits and status, and yet it’s handed to Nazis when they get un-banned.
