My post was a quick check to see who (apart from "Mladen") would respond to my post. This mostly settles it :)

It seems you have proven your point but there are a couple of different ways the situation might be viewed.

To me it seems that only the kindly skeptics find your posts worthy of response :wink:

I have to agree with the spin you gave, but the bigger question is also what is the worth of those "response" ...

It's not for me to judge but the saying "beggars can't be choosy" comes to mind.

"Beggars can't be choosers" is the more common saying, but both are correct. Furthermore, would anyone say the word "chooser" outside of this saying?

Wow.

The knowledge one could absorb here absolutely astounds me.

Seriously though I thought the remark might have been sarcastic, hence my asking of the question.

2. the use or tone of such language

Although he's on my "side" and may actually be ME, Malden's English struggles at times.

Now, if his English isn't and hadn't ever been a source of contention the "compliment" scenario might have been a consideration but as things are, sarcasm wins the ribbon.
