You're the one who's confused, not me.

Wrong. Just because there is no indication that an event happened, does
not mean that it didn't. The view you are taking seems to be an
existentialist view, are you a supporter of this train of thought.

You Cretin.

I don't think many people will be in agreement.

And you can spot these footprints?

Not at all, I stated plenty of quite reasonable reasons why I was not going
to state your age.

Has anyone else noticed that XYZ delets bits of posts, and ignores them, if they
are in any way detrimental to him/her?

I'm obviously not paying enough attention, because as far as I can tell most of
this post from you is a blatant falsity.

Well, for a start it would mean that I could concentrate on more worthwhile
threads, rather than this almost meaningless psychological banter.

Yuo were not paying enough attention, XYZ. I said [approximately]:

"I'll bet I'm younger than you"

Which is different, at least in my books, to saying that I'm younger than you.
I certainly *did not* say that I knew how old you are.

Is your grasp of English insufficient to realise this, or are you trying
to trick me into something?

Please read the posts more carefully in future if you wish to make
decent responses, otherwise you're just wasting mine, and everyone
else on this lists' time, not to mention the 'phone bill.
