    No. "Yawn" means I'm tired of the mental gymnastics. I live in Japan--I get my full share and then some.

    You wouldn't admit you were wrong, would you? A bit devious of you.

    (What do you mean "I get my full share and then some"?)

    You are even a bit defiant.

    Taka, I'm neither 'devious' nor 'defiant'. I'm just a kind soul who cares about people--even you, Taka.

    If you feel my response to your question is "wrong", that's OK. You have a choice: you can choose to ignore it or you can choose to ask more about it so as to further discussion and learning.

    Being a compassionate soul, I would like to accommodate your needs, but changing my post to suit you alone wouldn't benefit the students who learn from the responses your questions generate.

    Actually, I put my analysis for further discussion. But your response to it was nothing but "yawn", which really disappointed me. If that's your "compassion", that's fine. I'll just have to leave here because it's a bit different from my definition of "compassion".
