    Everyone will want our rating points and invade our tourneys if this gets out.

    And the Flavoured Dude has only just so much to give.

    I will not comment on your sentence structure.

    Sexist 1.adj Believing one sex is inferior believing that one sex is inferior to another in a variety of attributes. 2. adj Resulting from sexist belief resulting from or relating to the belief that one sex is inferior to the other in a variety of attributes. 3. noun Somebody who is sexist somebody who believes that one sex is weaker or inferior to another.

    One point in a thread does not maketh the summer. It is just not cricket to blame the bowler when you drop the catches.

    I will let that one pass throught to the keeper, but if you keep pitching them outside the offstump then be prepared to expect a couple of sixes over the boundary

    I might have just picked you up on it earlier if you looked

    I particularly liked the context in this case. It was actually what had caught my eye. Nothing worse than slighting the intellectual capacities of others with your (you're, youse) own special example

    Yes Libby and I are considering organising bus tours down to Melbourne - maybe call it "the Ratings Special Tour". (Could add in some wineries on the way back?)

    Well seeing I am not allowed to do it, I will just continue to indulge in thread drift...

    Please don't think I'm relating your spelling to intelligence, but shouldn't it be then instead of that.

    OK I got it wrong when I didn't know you could have a sexist (still sets my nerves on edge).

    However I can't let this one go.

    "Here are the rules:
    · Use I when the pronoun is in the subject of the sentence (is nominative), no matter where within the sentence the subject occurs.
    · Use me when the pronoun is in the predicate of the sentence (is not nominative), no matter where in the sentence the predicate occurs.
    · Use myself when the pronoun is reflexive and there is a “companion” nominative pronoun elsewhere in the sentence.

    I bought a book.
    George bought a book for me.
    George bought me a book.
    I bought myself a book."

    So no "Jenni, Libby and myself" please. (on a number of accounts - the juxtapositioning is enough to cause me to faint and call for smelling salts.)
