That's better. & so, yes, it appears I was after all right about which point you meant?

I have neither endorsed nor contradicted the statement you complain of, simply said that your efforts to prevent it being cited ~ NOT originated ~ by Keith were misplaced: were, indeed, I say again, merely an unworthy act of "shooting the messenger". If, as you say, you really couldn't even see a messenger, then perhaps you should have gone to Specsavers.

I have no doubt that you have opinions on various matters, but I don't see why I should be required to have such on all the same topics. It is my opinion that Mansfield Park is the greatest of English novels; but not only do I not require you to agree, I don't even insist on your having an opinion on the matter if you don't feel like it.

I do agree that the Pakistani thread is producing far more heat than light on this one, and would be best left alone. It was not me who introduced it here. Wonder who it might have been...
