I was looking up the correct meaning of "don't yank my chain" and saw from one of your staff - "Stephen" by name - that the definition of this expression "means a person wants you to leave them alone and go away"! This is not correct, and I would ask that you please let him know that the real meaning is along the lines of "you're kidding me", "you're bulldusting me", "you must be joking", etc. It would be a good idea to correct the published meaning as well!
