I just had a situation where I was trying to filter the queryset for a ModelMultipleChoiceField based on the currently logged-on user. I was going crazy trawling through the Django docs and eventually Google. It seemed like something which should be so simple, but there was no obvious way to do it. Eventually I found the answer, and it IS simple!
One of my passions has always been the articulate expression of oneself through language. We have this wonderful, rich language we call English and there is great joy to be found in learning to use it effectively. The point of this post isn’t to rant about the degradation of the language or our frequent abuse of it – I’ve covered that already – instead I’d like to talk about different ways of using the language in different contexts, and that I believe it doesn’t make sense to enforce strict, blanket rules across the board.
