Nobody mentioned this yet, I'm surprised. Anyway, for those that have been under rocks all weekend, some bloke in the UK appears to have naturally shrugged off HIV. That is; his blood test was HIV-positive in 2002, but came back negative in late 2003. And now we're being told to be cautious of the claims, so it's looking increasingly like there's been a blunder somewhere. He also doesn't want to be studied, which makes me think back to the Magical No-Memory Piano Man From Yonder The Seas.

I don't think anyone did anything wrong, we all just thought someone else did.

Ah I see, here is the crossed wire my friend:

"Ahh proved right :)" Was not directed at you, it was directed at nobody really, but if anyone it would have been Monkey Man. And it wasn't a sarcastic or flammatory comment, it was simply saying, "ah I'm not the only one who thought he was saying X instead of Y."

Gah I'm useless at explaining things :D

Oh, I don't object to that, I objected to the "ah, proved right," which was essentially a "You tried to be clever and failed." But like I said, it was a genuine question, not an attempt to show anyone up.

> Monkey Man: Y
> Me: Careful, that could be construed as X.
> Monkey Man: You know what I meant.
> You: Isn't X what he meant?
> Me: Nope, see Monkey Man, I'm right- sounds like X not Y.

happy days.

Pedantic:

Like a pedant, overly concerned with formal rules and trivial points of learning.

Being showy of one's knowledge, often in a boring manner.

Often used to describe a person who emphasizes their knowledge through the use of vocabulary.

Synonyms:

doctrinaire
fussy
nit-picky
ostentatious
pretentious

Just incase you didn't know.

I certainally didn't and still don't........

I didn't say that you were sarcastic. I said you were pedantic. Which you are. Also note the smiley which would indicate no bad feeling. If you were being a grump because you were tired thats not a problem, just don't come attacking me, I explained what I meant.

It was a genuine question, you pillock, not sarcasm. At the time it sounded to me like:

Monkey Man: X
You: Careful, that could be construed as X.

LOL thanks Cycloon

Believe it or not, not every forum is filled with pedanticity; just the ones with people who love the sound of their voice/keystrokes. :)

I'm waiting for someone to pull apart the spelling, meaning and morals of this message now ;D
