Sorry guys, I understand what you're saying Charles. I didn't want to come across as a prick, it's just a point of contention with me. It comes from reading the dictionary and thesaurus for hours on end.
You didn't come across as a prick, so don't worry. I try to look words up if I'm not entirely sure how to use them, but I'm sure I'm making assumptions about a lot of words that I use, too. I bet I could benefit from more cracking open of the dictionary and thesaurus.
