Is that a serious question?

I don't think you know what I mean by truth-value. I bet you have trouble with the word "fact." Tell us, do you?

Yes. Unless otherwise stated, a post invariably addresses the author of the post preceding it here. I also have a fun question I like to pose to people enjoying the view from a precarious perch "on the fence" as it were. Perhaps you'll answer this?

Do you think there is no Loch Ness monster?

You have my words in a quote tag associated with your poster name.

This is incorrect use of forum quote tags.

Either an "r" or an "s" depending on whether he meant "caprice" or "capisce". One can only speculate on whether that affects the "truth value", or even "truth-value".

It's an American idiom. Doesn't have gender connotation.

Many have made dramatic entrances at Ratskep. They often go like this...

No, you haven't "fixed it". The misattribution occurred first in post #41, here.

I don't know if the "post be can edited" window remains open for post #41. Heigh ho.

I don't know why either. the o on the end of the name is masculine. I was also going to offer something sexist about the content of his posts, but I'm not feeling naughty enough today, unlike you.

I've worked out what made me see womanliness - it was the fence sitting RE the existence of the Loch Ness monster/humans and gorillas being related. Reminded me of you, Fal. I'm unsure of course: they could be either, or even neither.

How is that a 'girly' thing, even if it is accurately described as fence sitting?
