Seem to be home-grown. Need to be caught and given long terms at hard labor.

May I pedantically request that the title of this thread be emended to "Timeo Danaos...", which is what Virgil actually wrote, please?

Ah yes, Virgil. I remember him well.
He was the nicest of the Earp brothers.

Yeah, the Earp Brothers...out here in The West we called 'em "The Fightin' Pimps."

Not to their face, though.

Wonder what Helena Troi (younger sister of Star Trek's Counselor Deanna Troi) would think of all these facetious postings?

So back to a serious, if pedantic, one. It still says 'Donaos' when it ought to be 'Danaos', as written in the Æneid by Publius Vergilius Mario {no relation to any of the Earps}; so may it be corrected please?

Thank you.

Apologies for the typo. I only passed O level Latin at the second attempt 50 years ago.

I had it Framed on my desk as a guide to dealing with Academic Staff along with the Biblical quote, " Put not your faith in Princes" None of them ever asked its significance!!!
