That was unnecessarily mean.

I'm seeing massive mean-ness in this Forum.

All of it aimed at people who contribute a lot.

Whereas I see at least one, possibly two commentators flashing their fascist credentials and talking points and nobody being mean to them.

In no particular order... Your "I wonder why" is a question for two reasons:

I'm going to stop you right there.

I said "I wondered why", not "I wonder why".

This makes it a statement, not a question.

I did not bother reading anything after that, as it simply followed on from your original mistake.


Just out of curiosity - as a teacher - do you insist that your students do their research properly?

Past or present tense makes no difference when you post a question from the past in the present because it still remains a question, otherwise why did you post it in the present, except to get an answer? Note that the solution to your problem here is the unanswered question as to the motivation for the post in the first place. I can see two possibilities, either it is still a question in your mind, or as a simple statement, a passive-agressive crit for the translaion being in French. If the latter, what is your problem with it being in French?

G=G+1 for a non answer to a specific question while rabbiting on in a personal off topic attack. Either you are too ignorant of the fact that French people speak French in France, or knowing that, in your prejudice, you feel that they should speak in English.

You might feel better in yourself if you stuck to chatting agreeably with self-confessed fascists.

I get it, Goss.

You are a teacher.

But I am not one of your students - and that is a relief.  For you clearly oppose anyone questioning anything you say.

I wonder what would happen if one of your students disagreed with a statement you made?

That was a question.

I wondered about this.

That was a statement.  An observation of an action, or previous state of being.


G=G+1 for the way you ended the  post with an unnecessary insult.

Goss isn't a fascist.

Sorry, but your "I wonder" by definition is a question, because it implies a respons in the form of an answer. Obviously your language education is or was deficient, because you have been unable to answer two questions, thus G=G+1

Question 1 is why did you post the issue of a Frenchman writing in French, if not a question or a crit.

Question 2 what evidence to you have that what I call a question from you is not a question.

Adding --- why are you persisting in this thread diversión, when you already have my answer to your off topic rabbiting on about your stupid question in the first plae.

This system was supposed to be a force for information.

Instead its become a sink for consumerism and spitting hatred at suntans.

In the case of Jennifer z, an opportunity for isolated egotistic individuals to ignore questions for which the answers might be embarrasing to fragile egos.
