    Hi;

    Please correct me the following two sentences.

    1. He seems to be interested in music.

    2. He seems to have interested in music.

    What's their difference ?

    I think I've answered this already. But here it is again:
    the second sentence is wrong- you'd need a noun after 'have'- 'seems to have an interet in'

    It seems to me that the original message was submitted thrice (ain't I post). I know of other board which disallow, resubmission of message within a 30 second period, in order to stop this problem. Or perhaps, I more labourious method would be for the Powers That Be to delete multiple copies of messages.

    I delete duplicate messages when I catch them. I was offline for about a week.
