I don't know. I think five's a trend. Four's just a pattern.

A serious discussion board, but a way, way off-topic thread that had nothing to do with programming.

How dare you insult my humor that way! It was not like a custard pie to the face! It was more like a water pistol to the eyes. How dare you!

OK, so mine was about five lines. So one line's OK; five lines are not OK. What about two or three lines? Where do you draw the line on lines?

> I couldn't resist correcting your English

I think you're confused. You corrected Bob's English. Then I corrected your correction of Bob's English. Then Gunny corrected my correction of your correction of Bob's English. Then I replied to Gunny in a whimsical fashion because the whole thing had gotten so out of hand that the truth seemed more farcical than the farce.

(By the way, don't feel bad about confusing me with Bob. I confused you with Gunny, thinking he was a Brit. It's easy to do.)

> but didn't expect some sort of Spanish Inquisition.

Well now you're really confused. I don't even speak Spanish........
