    Are you the person who went to the trouble of carefully down-thumbing every single post but 1 of that thread?

    OK, I can see you in there, so it wasn't you. 🙂 Any idea why DukeOfEuphony would have been ignored by the downer?

    Somehow I don't think thumbs rate very highly in the scheme of things, and I suspect he doesn't think so either. 🙂

    I just saw your post and checked... all my posts were thumbed down too, so I hope you think it wasn't me 🙂 if you want I can prove it by thumbing everyone up.

    Never really thought it was you - I just figured you were an accidental omission, and once he knew about it he went back and fixed it!

    I'm not a PC type, I can't be bothered with all that he/she/xe stuff, to me "he" is a generic for humans, like "it" is a generic for animals or "man" is a generic for humans. And you're probably right about the 95% male thing here anyway. 🙂

    Without lookig at the earlier post in this thread (which perhaps I should have done), I just would mention that there is a new word in Swedish - 'hen' - which is neutral. When you are not referring to 'han' or 'hon' (he or she), the word 'hen' is practical to use, but it hasn't been commonly accepted so far. Instead of using 'han/hon', just say 'hen'... 🙂




    Some edits were necessary in this post - it's after midnight and a few glasses of wine...
