Re: (meteorobs) Re: Statistics & Stationary Meteors
In a message dated 98-10-12 10:03:27 EDT, you write:
No you (George) still haven't grasped it. If I were addressing you
and you alone, I would have begun the message "George," like above.
The "you" and "your" in my original message was in the sense of "one"
and "one's", talking in the abstract and applying to the whole
readership. The word "one" in this sense sounds very English
upperclass so I used the alternative pronoun.
Before you leap up again because you George are part of meteorobs,
notice the words "can be" in the original sentence. It was not "will
be" or "is". I'm not saying that the downside applies to anyone on
meteorobs, but I have seen this behaviour before in others and myself
(fortunately no longer). My remark was a warning, not an accusation.
No problem...I understand.
