Thank you for being my proofreader in this thread.

I wish you could always proofread my writing...I know most of time you do a thankless job for other people here, but I am open-minded and appreciate.

I understand you have OCD for the decent language... So do I. Whenever I saw some inappropriate usage of the Chinese language, they were really eye sores for me.

But OCD is not the issue. Every ESL sit ...


I don't understand and I am not for why CD is trying to steer its major interest to a staid ESL website, which is not its expertise at all. There are numerous excellent ESL websites with professionals including accademic, linguists, journalists, etc. who have a genuine good command of English as you.  

IMO, CD should stick to its original standpoint-a media outlet focusing on politics, news etc. Well, languages can be a cold cut, but never are expected to serve as the main course being pinned perennially.

There are a very very few forumites who deserve the title-"English Experts" on CD in my eyes. The writings of many native speakers' are simply Alphabet Soup.

I knew I don't have honey lips in the view of the Mods of CD...Thereof, I knew it is time for me to say "Zaijian" to you and everyone in this thread...

Have a nice day!

On Victorian era houses there is a difference between suburban houses and victorian townhouses. The latter have no front garden and are terraced - connected in a row - and usually with a separate basement entrance. They are immortalized in the TV series Upstairs Downstairs, with servants downstairs (basement)
