    Re: difficult sentence

    I think that the problem is typos,punctuation and miss use of words. I have written below a possible meaning

    Dear Sirs,
    I do not understand this sentence. What does "get out of here" mean?

    Hope this makes sense.

    Re: difficult sentence

    Second explanation after re-reading. Please finish off the previous explanation by adding"What does does find out mean?" So in context of the letter if you are not interested enough to do some research you do not belong in this group.

    thank you
    To find out is to learn the facts of a situation in an effort to obtain the answer to a question.

    "If you don't want to find out, get out of there" would be said to someone who might not like the answer to the question.

    In other words:

    "If you don't want to hear the answer, don't ask the question."
