Quoting peacetrain:

You´re absolutely right, correction is very important when learning a language. However, the way it is done is also important and IMO a pm would have been more appropriate in this instance. It would have helped Yilgun in the future. The thread isn´t on the translation forum.



It´s nothing but the pot calling the kettle black. You could have informed LIR about how you interpreted her post via PM too instead of provoking a five-page pointless discussion...Don´t preach what you don´t follow yourself...

This answer was also predictable, a TC classic for some. Everyone has a choice as to whether they want to engage in a pointless discussion. The minute you decide to engage in a discussion it ceases to be pointless for you (´you´ in general terms). I think I´m right in saying that LIR hasn´t posted about the topic of the thread, but then that´s her right.


And hey, we all preach what we don´t follow at one time or other.

Final resort in a TC discussion . . .accuse someone of:

* being a pot calling the kettle black
* hypocrisy
* preaching about something they are also guilty of

Btw, couldn´t you have told me all that in a pm?

No real reason for quoting above but please tell me why everyone is making such an issue of this? Yilgin is a young man learning English, please stop picking on a simple mistake and "making a mountain out of a molehill" (Yilgin - example of a metaphor lol )

If you were all driving right now you would all be stuck in the middle lane doing 50mph lol

LL - here I am being picky again but I think that ´making a mountain out of a molehill´ is an idiom not a metaphor!

And btw I am not contributing to this thread because I don´t drive! - but I am a PERFECT backseat driver!

lol

What Kind of Driver Are You?
Cool-headed, careful and experienced?



The purpose of driving is to go from point A to point B as quick as you can. If everyone would just follow this philosophy there would be no more road rage in this world.

Ummm actually it is both a metaphor and an idiom....as some idioms are also metaphoric, such as this one.

make a mountain out of a molehill

Please note I did say ´I think´ - but I stand corrected and thank you for only posting one link to explain it to me!
