Re: Use of Have been without Present Perfect Continuous
It was Rover who first pointed out that "Sir" was incorrect, not me, but I did point out that you had for some reason added "Sir" to what had been a perfectly adequate post. You don't need to write anything instead of "Sir". You do not need to use any sort of salutation at all on this forum. No "Sir", no "Madam", no "Dear friends" etc. If you feel like it, you can start with "Hi" or something equally informal and chatty. Even "Dear Emsr2d2" is overly formal. You are not writing a letter to your bank manager. You're writing a post on a forum.
