As much as I enjoy your skewering of the sacred cows resident here, I would deeply appreciate it if you would lay of the hurricane threads. They really are useful; it would be a shame to see them go the way of almost every other thread in MNBR.

Thanks,

Ross

Sacred Cows, to me, are humans that are protected and nurtured despite thier seemingly intolerable behaviour. Forgiven time after time, regardless of the consequences of thier actions. Valued by a group, for reasons unfathomable in rational review.

Ross' construction is correct, aside from misspelling off as of. FWIW.

I misspell things all the time and probably have right here!

No intention of being pedantic, I'm in no position, unlike some of our members, but I do try to pay attention and learn. I like good construction of language. I probably ought to study Latin or something. :rolleyes:
