Maybe slightly off topic but may I say how proud I am off of being on such a respectful discussion board? Ladyfinn as well as non-other native English speakers put themselves out there and take risks so we can learn new and interesting things and posters are supportive of that? We really are a good bunch on here. The best, in my humble opinion.

Maybe my choice of word wasn't perfectly correct, but perhaps that window thing wasn't the most important thing at the article.

I understand Lady Finn, and you are right. I didn't realize you had written it yourself and I apologize for making fun.


And right you are Honeybees! I am in awe of non-native English speakers who are brave enough to post here. I would never do it if the situation was reversed!

I am so sorry but didn't realize that you were translating for us, I also thought it was a direct quote from the English version of the publication. Thank you so much for all of your work and interesting posts.
I have done translating and know how difficult it is.

Personally speaking Moonmaiden, I don't believe you came across as making fun of a fellow poster. As I said I to believed the phrase which I admitted made me laugh out loud came from a journalist and that is why I laughed. That and the thought of windows having personality traits.

LadyFinn, please forgive me if I in any way caused you upset or offence. It was a genuine misunderstanding and I am truly sorry. Your a star and I respect you and your work for our benefit on here.
