I had no trouble understanding him. Richard, Free Agent put the ">"s in for UC's post for me. It's probably ... his posts with lines of hyphens or equal signs, maybe with "start of quoted post" and "end of quoted post".

I use Google Groups. Does that have anything to do with this?

Richard, Free Agent put the ">"s in for UC's post for me. It's probably a combination of your program and his posts. You could bracket his posts with lines of hyphens or equal signs, maybe with "start of quoted post" and "end of quoted post".

The best remedy is obtaining the free QuoteFix from http://home.in.tum.de/~jain/software/oe-quotefix /
It cures all sorts of OE "features".

I think so, but I'm not sure. It's the "quoted-printable" encoding that causes a problem for OE. The fix is in getting QF, as I have said in another post.

Google Groups limits the number of posts per hour to about 20 or so. That's why I have several accounts; you will see different e-mail addresses throughout the day if I am posting a lot and run up to the limit.
However, in Swedish, it is perfectly acceptable to split infinitives. English is more closely related to Swedish so hey, go ahead and split

Well, English and German are both West Germanic, while Swedish is North Germanic, so the closeness of the languages is not really as you say. But since UC thinks that English has to use German rules, while giving examples that highlight cases where English certainly does not follow German rules (word order, Capitalization, spelling, alphabet, and vocabulary), I hope you're just entertaining yourself (as I am) rather than thinking that you'll get through to him. He is simply to unerstand too thick. He must this do, around to tain him enter, as he probably none friends hath.

I fear that saying that to UC is splitting into the wind.

So you reckon that, to Bob C, the form with "to" is a spit infinitive?

Pointless. You don't listen, you won't proofread, you post meaningless one-word answers.
