And that's really about as much rebuttal as you're going to manage...the author's name had scrolled off the top of my window, and I hadn't been keeping careful track, when I got to the part "is not used"...I thought to myself, that's got to be UC posting...sure enough, when I scrolled back up, I was able to award myself a cigar..r

So which language do you think I speak?
I seem to recall that you seem to speak both 18th century German and 18th century English - how well I can't judge since I wasn't alive at that time.
