First off, that remark was directed at me because I posted a link which
had already been posted. The assumption being I read *every* message. :)

After searching, I noticed *one* of the links I posted was in another
message AND had a different subject. Pointed out by a top poster, to top
it all off!! :-)

Have you ever seen a "Commando", or any of those war type comics?
"Arrrgh!!!", "Grunt!", Rat a tat tat!!! "Kill the hun!!!" aren't
actually replacements for a book, like "Biggles", or "The Wind in the
Willows" etc. 

Comics or whatever they call them now may have changed, but so has the
standard of English which is so freely (ab)used.
