in thread puts vs say

What I'm saying is: why bother with say at all. Why not write your own say that does what you want? If say is meant to be a convenience function, then it should actually *be convenient*.

    It is extremely convenient for me. :)

    And you didn't even know bears could type.

      It could be *more* convenient... UPDATE: but it'd be more convenient for me.

        But what if I want to always add a newline regardless of what is being said? The functionality you want would be less convenient for me.
