    Red face SPELLING OF A WORD !

    My boss said in a meeting the following sentence:

    We cannot appeal anymore because they send it back and say it is MUTE!

    How do you spell the last word in this sentence? Mute?

    I believe he is saying it makes no difference when you submit the paperwork, as the information has changed therefore it is MUTE!

    Thanks.

    Moot. The word he's looking for is moot.

    Moot point.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
