#2 Off topic: is ringknocker a neutral term or is it taken as an insult? I don't want to do it wrong. Thank you.

#3 Mrs. Wife -
FWIW, it's been my experience that 'ringknocker' was universally perjorative - an officer less than capable getting ahead by tapping his (or these days, her) Academy ring on the table to remind those Academy grads senior to him that he is one of Them, and they owe him their loyalty even at the cost of others. Hope that helps -

if you mean the very oversize rings that are given to graduates, it is probably neutral
on the other hand, there is this famous scene from Young Frankenstein (w Gene Wilder and Teri Garr)

#5 Thank you, gentlemen. I've changed it to the more neutral officers. I prefer to do my insulting on purpose.
Lord Garth, thank you for that lovely memory from the film. It was one of my first ventures outside the Disney oeuvre, and a revelation in countless unexpected ways.

#6 I prefer to do my insulting on purpose.
LOL! In subtle shades of mauve and heather gray, with a precise splash of blood here and there.

#7 *giggle*. It's true that heather grey goes with everything, especially if it's cashmere and pearls are involved... On the other hand,mauve was always intended to go with Victorian mourning jet beads, I think, not a subtle look at all, especially with splashes of blood.
Separately, I had occasion to quote what you said a while back about lawyers being happily snapping wolf cubs the other day. With that, I carried my point and the argument, which doesn't always happen with me.
Even more separately, could you drop me an email? I have a silly question you might be able to answer.
