I ummed and ahhed about that thread. Initially, I didn't close the thread but when I went back in to edit my post, it seemed to me that we had all had enough of it, so I clicked "Close Thread" that time. I didn't consider myself to be doing it at the OP's request though I realise that my wording might have sounded like I was. It has been reopened but it doesn't appear to be going anywhere from a language point of view.
