    I was halfway through correcting your mistakes, when I realised that you have made exactly the same mistakes that you made in another thread. I corrected them there, and asked you to take more care. If you cannot be bothered to make some effort to help yourself, I cannot be bothered to waste time on you.

    Also, I answered part of this question, here: http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/pr...tml#post860969 . It would have made more sense to continue this topic in that thread rather than starting another.
