Dr. E. --
You have broken one of them by claiming above that women are in general attention whores.
Sorry, I'm totally confused.... (Yeah, I've been "warned" too! :wink: )
The phrase "in general" very clearly implies that there are many exceptions to the rule, and so it does not grammatically or logically state an equivalent premise of "all
If, "in general" is a violation of the SYG code, what about "some," "many," "most," "a few," "occasional," "typically," and sundry expressions?
In fact, what about "sundry?" It implies many or most. With exceptions.
Are we really going to walk off this cliff of syntactical trivial pursuits?
Can I please get the complete and blessed vocabulary list
(mostly adjectives) for correctly posting here?
I'm "entirely" (whoops... another violation) exasperated with it ALL
(Oh, shit... backspace, delete, ESC key!)
But I'll give it one more try ---
Is the R-U-L-E that one cannot speak anything that can be implied as a categorical
statement about w-o-m-e-n?
Do we have any retired English teachers or existential grammaricians hereabouts?
(I made up that second job classification....)
