Contratulations. All those words are English words.
When do you start on grammar ?

if your going to write a snide post about grammar/spelling, one would check that it has no errors in grammar/spelling which yours has both.

i'm fully aware of the fact that most of my posts have grammar and spelling errors, in which way did you think i might enjoy having this pointed out?

In what sense do you believe people enjoy reading them?

To be fair, I too was bemused by your original post. I'm now intrigued by trying to find the grammatical error in the reply.

Only certain models need the update. My TiBook wasn't one of those, and I wasn't offered the chance to download it.

Does this count as disability discrimination, I wonder? That would be complaint to ISP time, would it not?

You *are* aware that Roger is dyslexic, right?

And as Roger points out, no-one is forcing you to read his posts anyway.

I am seeking "Mapmaker" by Johnny Gogan on VHS in the UK http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0294703/ Anyone seen this available to buy anywhere? Can't find it.

I have no idea if Orreg is pointing this out since it was killfiled after reading the first one.

Whether it does or not, it's still bloody rude.

That's not a correction, it's a comment. Semantics are at least as important as syntax.

I'll thank you to be a little more kind about those suffering from the disability dyslexophobia.
