    Urgent: clarity on Q

    Get all the gossip you wanted to know of.

    OR

    Get all the gossip you wanted to know about.

    I wanted to know which of these sentences is correct. And whether the last word should be 'of' or 'about'.

    Neither.

    "Get all the gossip you want".

    But of course full context does make it easier to say what the "correct" form might be.
