    I wasn't complaining, just correcting wrong info. Just as I'd want anyone to do to me if I wasn't correct.

    I see a language, spelling cop. Watch the spelling as I am terrible at it and some times the computer changes what I was trying to spell into some weird stuff.

    Carry on, been told good and proper.
