GUEST,Jim I BS: I am not an historian but........ (693* d) RE: BS: I am not an historian but........ 07 Dec 14


Musket said: By the way, as Terribulus isn't here, I shall do his pedantry for him. When you write the thread name, it is "a" historian, not "an" historian. At least show you understand English before telling us about reading it...

In fact Keith was perfectly correct. An historian is the usually accepted way of writing IN ENGLISH! If however you are American 'a historian' is often accepted.

I was a bit hesitant about writing this as it seems if you disagree with the Mudcat tycoons you get insulted, shouted at and generally done to death. I don't agree with Keith's argument but he at least simply restates it and has not resorted to the level of the gutter, like some.

Good night
