Internal Processing In Progress

So it's time for me to start the second edition of the TopSail Sheet Newsletter, which I'll do by noodging the director to write his piece for it as soon as he gets in the door. I'll also noodge him about paying me, for the third time.

I need to develop a few intermediate levels of noodging. What people perceive is that I go from Polite Request to Sledgehammer-to-the-Head in about half a second. That's not *my* perception, but it's not my perception that counts, here. What should go in between "Please do X" and "If you don't do X, consequence Y will ensue?"
