Don't address authors of annotations.

When presenting an argument during a debate, a Member of the British Parliament is supposed to address only the speaker. He isn't supposed to directly address another MP.

Anyway, to make the Halfbakery more parliamentary, and therefore better, I propose that all annotations should be addressed to the author of the idea, or just to no one in particular. Halfbakers should not engage in dialogue through the medium of annotations.

The floor is now open for arguments for and against.

       I rise on a point of order - may I move that proceedings be temporarily suspended to enable honourable ladies and gentlemen to retire for a cup of tea?

       Point of Order ?   

       Point of Order: Infraction of the rules, or improper decorum in speaking. Must be raised immediately after the error is made.
normzone, Dec 14 2015
  

       [Cuit_au_Four], would you please let the honorable [hippo] know that while there is no restraint on the amount of tea they may imbibe, the business of this bakery will not be suspended, temporarily or otherwise, whilst they do so.

       Here's a tough one [Cuit_au_Four] - No member can speak twice to the same issue until everyone else wishing to speak has spoken to it once.
normzone, Dec 14 2015
  

       [Cuit_au_Four], please extend, on my behalf, a hearty "Hear, hear!" to the honorable member [pocmloc].

       Oi, you. Is this the thing with no hesitation, no repetition, etc.?
Ian Tindale, Dec 14 2015
  

       I move to suspend the rules.
normzone, Dec 14 2015
  

       [Norm], I disagree.
MaxwellBuchanan, Dec 14 2015
  

       Point of order... Might I be excused to make a motion in the men's room?

       <bzzz!> [Ian] repeated the word "no"
hippo, Dec 15 2015
  

       I believe the member for hippo took an entire day to respond.
Ian Tindale, Dec 15 2015
  

       I would like to assure the right honourable member for Tindale that my tardiness in replying has an entirely innocent explanation; I was ensuring that I get to claim parliamentary expenses for two days, rather than one.
hippo, Dec 15 2015
  

       In that case, I propose that the member for hippo must, by my calculations, have taken a year to respond. I’m a year older today than I was yesterday.
Ian Tindale, Dec 15 2015
  

       I am in favor of being more like Parliament, if I can wear a sweet costume with velour and stork feathers.   

       I am handy with the tambourine as well.

       Mr. Four, sir? The execution of this idea would make me afraid that it might sound like telling the teacher on little Bobby, sir.
