    ***NOT A TEACHER***Good afternoon. I was taught this difference: (1) Did I do ANYthing wrong? You have no idea. Maybe the boss will say, "No, you didn't. Fine job." Or he might say, "Just a little mistake. Don't worry about it." (2) The boss calls you to his office. He looks angry. You suspect that maybe you did a bad job. "Sir, did I do SOMEthing wrong?" The boss might say, "You guessed right! And I'm going to fire you!" Or he might say, "No, you didn't. You did a fine job. I'm angry with someone else -- not you. Don't worry." Thank you.

    Good evening, TheParser. I hope you are well.
    Have you ever considered leaving some white space in your posts? For example, starting a new numbered point on a new line? Please don't take this as a criticism. I think your posts are worth reading, and I think you could make them more readable.
    Of course, you can ignore my advice as you see fit.
    Bye bye, and have a good night.

    Good afternoon, VIP Member. Thank you for your suggestion. I am basically (completely) computer illiterate. So I don't know how to do what the other posters do. I am trying to leave spaces with these sentences. I hope it works. Thank you.

    Dear VIP member:
    Someone has just told me what to do in order to start a new line.

    You can't believe that anyone could be so dumb?

    Well, let me introduce myself.

    Thanks again for the constructive advice.

    Don't be so hard to yourself.
    Everyone was a beginner once, too.

    Cheers!
