G=G+1, but only for your BTW as I will deal with the first part without the OT rider attached. When it comes to my "personal rules" they only apply to those addressing posts to me, from people who already have been informed that they are unacceptable. If you find one or more of these personal rules inappropriate here, why can´t you seem to give an example of one of these and show how they are out of line here? This

 When using he word "also" the reader would expect to find a clear indication of two different things. 

You say 2Trump likes o use the term "grafics", also...

Question is "also" here a substitute for a full stop ending the end of a thought.

If so, I would expect an example of Trump´s use of "graffics". 

If not, there needs to be a bridge to the other part of the sentence.

You gave an example, but without a context, how can we know that he regrets something, or is just backpeddling because he has met some resistence.

By observing Trump´s misuse of vocabulary, I would not be surprised that when he uses tis word his concept is quite differet then we or the dictionar might use it.

OH, a grammar monitor also, also, also. Hah! I was merely pointing out that Trump values image over actual accomplishment.

But, yet again, you find it necessary to attack me in some way, when I object to "personal rules" that don't belong in a public forum.

Too bad that we can't resolve this in an arm wrestling contest or something. Bring your wand, you Slythindor!

G=G+1 I have no interest in your grammar except where your misuse of it allows for an ambiguous message. this is not designed as an attack or a crit, simply a question as to which of the two possibilityies your imprecise grammar allows, is the meaning. Your defensiveness is probably a cover up for your insecurity. Nothing to resolve because you have neither justfied an objection to my "G" nor esponde to my question.

This is the only question that you asked me to "esponde". And you keep implying that I have insecurities, and am covering them up, somehow. 

Maybe you would prefer that I was a teenage Muslim girl in a hijab, that you so admire, covering herself up to not be leered at, and unable to respond to an old white dude who feels entitled.

Were you possibly inebriated when you wrote that?

RGoss is entitled to behave as if he feels entitled.

Furthermore, he's entitled to behave like an asset to the Forum, which he unquestionably is.

Even his lapses are amusing and perhaps easily explained.

G=G+1 thanks for admitting I asked a question, which you still have not answered in your thread hijacking. I even provided you two possible answers to that question which you are still ignoring. I am not criticizing your improper grammar in context, only confused by it, when a full stop instead of "also" would have made your post clear.

In most of the languages I know, people who are insecure in their statements, use words such as "also" but usually "and" as a replacement for a full stop because this keeps the line open so to speak, and prevents the other from disagreeing to a specific error, by cluttering up the dialogue. As a result if the other says "no", then as a passive-agressive gets to pick that part of a run-on sentence to disagree on while avoiding responsibilty for the actual error.

note that CzoeMC in is misquoting me by using other words that I did not say, mean, or imply, is telling us more about his personal issues then about me. Specific example of this is the confusion between "observed" which is neutral, and "leered" which is negative, especially when referring to an older aduldt in relation to a teen girl.

One´s eyes pick up everything in front of them and registers the observations in the brain whether consciously or subconsciously. When words such as "leered" are used it is the opinion, conscious or not, which provides the interpretation. In this case a rather sick error considering there was no original context to support it.

Cz´s message suggests in her world any male to female observation is sexual and negative, a rather sad and sick comment on her life experiences, suggesting that she relates to being a victim, whether she is or not. In psychology this shift in meaning is freudian.
