Hahaha :D

native English speaking people should empathize with the rest of the 
community, e.g. better than the usage of "then" would have been "back 
then" or "before then". Btw. my English is terrible broken, but I did 
understand - still do understand - the "then" correctly, because I 
wasn't emotional involved in this specific part of the discussion.
Language is a funny virus.
On German, my native language, I had flame wars when writing, but when 
having phone calls with the same people everything was fine again, 
because it just were misinterpretations of the way we used or language.

Not least because I'm a dyslexic, but because the written word in all is 
problematic, I love the language called music.
