    Re: Thanked posts???!!!!

    but is there some confusion here?..
    I mean is there a rule?
    I mean that the beginning learners may treat both the same: Thanked posts by Mhd Shaher - posts thanked by Mhd Shaher (I feel that they are the same: they both mean that Mhd Shaher thanked posts)
    Can you sir tell me what is the rule?.. I want to deep in that because I am academic not learner..

    Thank you for your interest..

    Neither of the sentences are very good, in my opinion.

    If you want to express the idea properly, then they should be something like this.

    "Find all posts in which Mhd shaher has thanked others."
    "Find all posts in which Mhd shaher has been thanked."

    No more confusion.

    I am not a teacher.
