    I am not here to satisfy you or answer your questions. I was here long before you were. I don't want or need your apology. You are just another guy on a forum.

    You are right. Aarts, bhaisahab, Biber, Bullokar, Carter, Christophersen, Declerk, Eckersley, emsr2d2, Frank Palmer, Greenbaum, Hornby, Huddleston, Jespersen, Kruisinga, Leech, Lewis, Martinet, McCarthy, Murphy, Palmer (H) , Piscean, Poutsma, Pullum , Quirk, Sandved, Sinclair, Svartek, Swan, Sweet, Tdol, Thomson, Zandvoort, and many others, were wrong.

    Thank you for showing me the way, the truth and the light.

    Re: Verb or verbal?

    Your sarcasm is duly noted. It is not my fault that you cannot stand being disagreed with. Do you think you are really that special?

    I have noted that you have had nothing to say about my posting from Purdue University. If you can't defeat it, you just ignore it.

    Re: Verb or verbal?

    Can we calm things down, please. This is ad hominem. We should be able to disagree without this. Can't we have some respect here?

    I am shutting this thread down as the heat/light ratio is out of kilter. Please keep it from spilling out.
