@RobPN @7up 

By PM, please be more specific. I thought we older folk are supposed to be educated enough to cope with more than basic sentences. Cheesy

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Here's one I read a couple of minutes ago, there are plenty more occurrences which are not so easy to understand.  Wink

Ha Ha! but the next to last really should pride of place!

I agree, and the gaps are usually easily filled.

I can only recall one post which I couldn't understand at all.

To err is human, but to really foul things up requires a computer.

@198kHz Let me know which it is, please, preferably off forum.

@ all My personal etiquette would make me avoid criticising such matters as personal style in open forum. as it could be thought an ad hominem attack. Such can result in feeding frenzies od those who have axes to grind, and bad blood.Cry

It's not personal @Luzern it's business - otherwise known as fun at the forum. Wink

Crib - I remember playing it with my grandad as a youngster. I was in awe of the speed he could calculate scores. Fifteen Two, fifteen four, a double-run of 8 - 12!

 

Now I can't find anyone to play with me; "Is it on XBox or Playstation?"Sad

Trouble with the yufe of today using a calculator is not being able to estimate the result first. If that's what the calculator displays then it must be right irrespective of any wrong inputsRoll eyes

Re: Cloth Ears returns mode laden than intended

Forgot to add that my dad, who had no great maths skills, was unbeatable at the speed of him scoring darts including subtracting the result. And, as quick as a flash, he could tell you the best way out (if possible) from any score left.

 

My mother, who left school at 12, was able to add up a long list of prices when checking the weekly shopping list without error quicker than I could turn on the calculator and press the first '+' key!

 

Imagine using pounds, shillings and pence today. Some people's brains would explode! That's 7/-, 7d and 3 farthings. Here's your change from a ten bob note. I guess us the older members of the forum would know the answer to thatWink

@Minivanman The cause @7up long ago made another attack on my style, so there is form, I think.

Obviously my sense of humour is much different from yours, but I don't wish to go round criticising it, or any other members' input irrelevant to the thread theme.

Perhaps we should have a Luzexit referendum.

Should Luzern leave the Plusnet Community Forum, his posting style being inappropriate?

Yes

No

No of course you should not leave and.....

we certainly do not need another referendum, irrespective of the topic, indeed the word should be banned, it's caused enough trouble.
