Since Sunflower isn't here, :woo to post uninteresting things on this topic, I will fill her shoes (not literally) to keep the thread alive. 

This is interesting and serves him right for being French.  :D

Well.... I'm not sure that they will. Rumour has it (and as you know I'm not one to gossip)  :shhh ..but they've possibly been kicked off the forum for bad behaviour. Doesn't surprise me tbh, please don't spread it around.  :D

It's about bluddy time someone, somewhere, started to improve the use of English language grammar.  Good for him, I say.

You can keep it too.  We've had enough of your "Americanisms" and "Merkin English" polluting our Queen's English over the last 30 years or so. :nerner
