    Not only am I shocked at the serious error reported by Developer215, I'm also shocked that Meldrew2 is not shocked by it. We should all be shocked. It's shocking.

    What would Renault12ts have to say about this, I wonder?

    Slippery...very slippery.:bannana:

    It's spelt correctly for when arms and legs are added, as opposed to the fruit.:eek:

    It just isn't right,
    I shall be writing to the administrator.
    Most disappointing and unfortunate.


    Perhaps we should all boycott this thread from now on?

    I've held an independant enquiry into said error, with the two people responsible (oddly enough, a father and son team).

    The younger said "it was before my time"

    The more senior said "er, um, it happened after I'd relinquished daily control"

    If we all act quickly and decisively, it is my widely held belief we might be able to get away scot free.

    But what did their flame-haired apparatchik* have to say?

    * How apt: a chick who keeps parroting the same line.

    PS: Typical! You start a spelling thread, and then post a message containing the words "independant enquiry". :rolleyes:

    I demand to be informed on what action will be taken, in regards to this unspeakably depraved use of the English language! :D
