I've read 11 pages of this thread, now - and I do have a burning question: Shouldn't the "Andrews" in the thread title be followed by an apostrophe of possession?

Or a colon or dash - I could accept one of those two, as well.

Humanities degrees don’t teach basic English language skills 😉

Yes; an apostrophe not a dash.

No, that’s correct. Most people gather basic English language skills at Primary School.

Apostrophe, of course.

It could be with a colon, an em dash, or simply a space: all are acceptable, though the dash is marginal.

Or just a colon, no apostrophe. Just a dash? Well, OK, at a pinch, but the colon is better.

PS: see my sig.

Isn't it in the wrong place? His name is Andrews not Andrew

Stui, couldn't you have waited until Tannin saw it first? Confused Laughing

As long as we don't have to eat Dan, I'm OK with anything, now.

Who is Scottys? And why isn't he spelled "Scotties"?

David from Canberra, write this out 50 times:

"I am a very naughty boy."

I didn't have enough space to properly fix it by putting both apostrophes in, so have given Daniel his official portmanteau to keep Stui happy. Also, detention for all of you.

Detention? Goodie! We can all stay back and pull Stui's pigtails! Yay!


PS: you could have just left out "strength of" without changing the meaning by more than a hair.
