Tut, tut. Let's not get nasty. You may notice that Kai is posting from
Germany. I think it is reasonable to assume that English might not be his
first language. Given that and the fact that his English is usually
superb (note that he uses "phenomena" correctly several times above), he
can certainly be forgiven a slip of the tongue now and again. Besides,
grammar flames are just silly.

But I am reading this from where the rules are a bit
looser. I don't know who originally cross-posted this thread, but I must
say it has become interesting from time to time. It really is hopeless to
stop all the cross-posting now since there are, I believe, representative
participants from each of the groups.
