    instead of saying "so and so has answered your question" should it not be 'responded' to your question?

    just look up the meanings and then say nit pick. Give others a chance to respond.

    Another Kingly Quality... Hail Hail!

    Responded would be better because some "answers" are really comments or opinions.

    sawali

    clu, that mskes total sense to me.

    It does not matter. A question begs an answer. At least you get an alert. Why so picky?

    sawali

    Call it ALERT instead of answer, Colleen. WHAT IS APPROPRIATE IS WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT.

    Are you not happy here? Go create your own forum and run it the way you think a forum should run. Good lord, I can not believe you are having a hissy over this. What would be appropriate is if you would stop finding silly things to complain about.

    I do not decide what words are used with the program. Complain to the administrators, not the members.

    No, the issue is yours. You take it up with them. I do not get paid to do this. This forum goes away when I turn my computer off. I do not see a problem with the wording, you do. Take it to the admin, not me and not the members.

    I vote for, "Hey You!  There is something in your bin!"  Truthful and very alert-ish!

    I'm sure there will be a disagreement about the use of the word bin. Some may not think it appropriate to call it a bin. ;)

    THANK YOU fishgirl - you have an open mind. No matter what others say, that is a positive attitude.

    I think you are splitting hairs. Everyone knows the meaning of  'answered' and 'responded'.

    Yeah you are right LOL

    Perhaps he may have a point.  


    "Responded" may be more accurate, since the respondents "answer" to a question may not be the correct answer??

    This from the person who has what...8 or more accounts here? You must go nutty with all the alerts saying you got an answer to your comment.

    Jack, some people do not have an open mind for a different view point WHICH MIGHT BE APPROPRIATE!

    This open mind hear's what your complaining about but sees no issue with the wording. This open mind is still letting you have your say even if it is snotty.
