No, not "Greenbat you useless bastard" comments. Instead, any helpful suggestions, bugs, ideas etc. I have very little (i.e, none) experience with forum running, so help is very much appreciated

I agreed with Chillys' wording because that type of in your face humour appeals to me, no other reason and certainly not a pop at Classic Bike mag

Billy Connolly explains

or to be blunter (more blunt? help me out Velt)

Hmmmm, not sure why I got mentioned but.......

I would go for "more blunt" rather than "blunter"
No special reason that I'm aware of, just sounds better to me.

Surely no-one thinks that I'm a pedant??? :lol:

And I never intended to infer that you were mate. I know you have a thing about inappropriately placed apostrophies and so I assumed that you were into etymology and that was the only reason I mentioned your name. No offence meant mate :) :)

No problem, guys. :lol:

I do have a pedantic streak, without doubt, and I've been called a lot of worse things! :roll:

You're not the only one. Umm, I think at least half of us in here are pedants of some description.
