I was saying you need to work on yours before you criticize others.

As a professional book editor and translator, I'd say it's
definitely the other way around, Stan. Case in point: You didn't even
bother to understand the OP's question in this thread before giving
him an answer he ruled out a priori (that's "from the get-go" to you).
He clearly said "of course the well known musical 'Chess'
EXCLUDED" (emphasis added), but what do you do? You tell him "the
musical 'Chess' has a ton of songs with chess references." Hardly a
good example of reading comprehension.

Yes you've mentioned this countless times and we're all impressed but
we're concerned that you might strain your elbow patting yourself on
the back so no need to mention it again.

I also wrote: "However probably fails the pop song requirement." but
you conveniently omitted that when trashing me. Yes, had I went back
and reread the 25 or so previous posts I would have never dared to
write that. Unfortunately, I forgot the seriousness of publishing what
could be taken as legal testimony here.

Taylor, when you purposely parse folks response so as to take them out
of context or support your (not this instance) arguments with other
folks typos or mispellings, you are being intellectually dishonest.
You sound more and more like Kevin Bachler who also is said to suffer
from Asperger's Syndrone.

At last, some common ground.

The rest of the thread did not appear in misc.kids, where I picked up on it.
