Julian can change the number of posts that show on the left hand side - regardless of how many he has actually posted!

What has that got to do with your extra 9?

JR said he had posted 9999 times when in fact it says Julian had posted 99999 times. I said to add an extra 9!

I see now,

that should be "Julian HAS changed the number of his posts to put him at the top."

Yes, but there is no need for Amy to rephrase what is not a question but a statement, she only needs to remove the question mark.

However at least she has only put a single question mark where it is not needed.

I know you would never tell a lie, Amy, but don't we think that is stretching the truth just a little?

yes but you have said they are NOT mis-spelt and then said they don't mean what you mean rather than don't mean what you write!!

I think!!

No wonder we are all getting a little confused!

Amy says that she doesn't mis-spell in her posts. She then goes on to say that she doesn't mean what she means, in which case perhaps she means that she agrees that she does mis-spell. However, that still leaves grave doubt about what she does actually mean when she says that her posts are not always grammatically correct, which, indeed, they are not (always grammatically correct).

(Perhaps it is foolish to seek to find any logic in the scribblings of a blonde - especially one as lovely as she. Maybe all we should look for is to be entertained by her - which indeed we are. Thank you, Amy.).
