Yeah, since you are a stickler for accuracy please clarify the following.

In America when discussing your replies one would say, "yeah, what an
obnoxious >dickhead<."

However since you are in the U.K. American slang wouldn't apply. Not to
mention the possibility that what was mentioned in the above conversation
might drift back to you eliciting another 10K response. So, what *would* be
the proper term?



thnx in advance.



You must always change the way it is, to have it the way you want.
