I am not supporting Christopher Michael Bourke here, just trying to
clarify a few points that I have noticed go past :
Ebj said (Quoting Christopher):
>> Sorry, you didn't make sense here, clarify.
>Really? Ever heard anybody say "Misato is the one who killed Kaji"?
I think Christopher was referring to Ebj's comment :
> Anno said no-no. However, in the case of the endings nobody says that
> they cannot match, only the they could not.
And further, I think he was asking for a clarification of your use of the
cannot/could not phrase.
Ebj said :
> more than one could exist. And judging from the little share your
> perception is obtaining from the participants to this list, it
> really _ is_ your perception _only_.
This is a dangerous argument Ebj! Does this mean you are abandoning your
view that Lilith is not the Second Angel (and maybe not an Angel at all),
simply because other people do not support it ? -_^
and finally, apropos of politeness :
> They are imperative. If you don't behave politely you prove yourself
But to a native speaker of English, your use of the imperative is
impolite. To some, perhaps even more so than Christopher's use of words
that some people in some English speaking cultures find offensive.
Of course, your English is streets ahead of my Italian, so I am not here
criticizing you for the way you use the language. I am only attempting
to point out that there are alternative views to everything here,
including what is appropriate personal conduct.
Post Scriptum: this thread broke out *before* Iris went on leave, at
