15 Seemant: Please, please, learn a bit about British English idiom.
16 Your gross over-reactions to both what I, and Steve Long, wrote indicate that
17 while you have interpreted our words precisely, you have completely failed to
18 appreciate the overall nuance of meaning in either message. Neither of which
19 carries anything like the level of inflammatory obloquy which you seem to
20 have deduced from them. I don't know who first uttered the phrase: "We are
21 separated by our common language." or words to that effect, but I see the
22 effect of it in postings to this list time and time again. It's a shame.

26 Indeed! You stole my very words!
27 A case for the thought police I do believe!

30 Not today, thank you.
32 For those readers who might have difficulty with this message, please rest
33 assured that the second two paragraphs are intended to be jocular, and
