"Anal retentive" means "stuck up", "arrogant".Anal! What language! Anal-retentiveness! What characterisation!
Am I making a "false argument"? If so, what about my "argument" is false?From one who engaged in conversation with another Site member to be convinced _to urge the whole SV to down arms_, gullibly accepting this other Site member's _false_ arguments and wrong information! That was bad service to SV, Qray.
Not that my OP was meant to start an argument, which is quickly degenerating into a flame war, but to point out a "posting peeve", and to express concern that the "grammar police" was causing at least one poster to consider leaving SV.
For some reason, that concern seems to have put a burr under your saddle. At this point, all I can say is "Tough", which appears to mirror you opinion about my opinion.
I've said all I have to say on the matter.
