Something from the aforementioned phrase thread I completely forgot about:
I don't want the mainstream to pick this up. I want it to be the exclusive domain of film score fanatics. We can call each other old sport in our always-civilized interactions on this board and our infrequent get togethers. However, "old sport" will be used mockingly and derisively when said to non-film score buffs but even then only in the presence of other film score aficionados."
My sentiments, exactly. I find the current and ubiquitous "No Problem" to be a poor substitute, one which implies that there was actually a problem, that the person in question merely fulfilled an obligation, and that he/she really didn't give a shit about doing any small favors in the first place. Simple manners and grace seem to have fallen by the wayside.
