  • Wordies,

    I'm afraid that it's my fault if Basil started sending messages here on Wordie.

    I think his website is a nice idea, so I started using it and linking to Wordie there and vice versa.

    I couldn't expect this. Sorry!

  • Ouch, it's a fellow Brit:

    Phone: 442075467780

    Westminster (London SW1)? No wonder: scummy lot down there...

    Edit: I kindly obfuscated the e-mail address, because after all I wouldn't want to be responsible for Basil's being spammed.

  • I asked him to delete his comments.

    Let's see if he'll be nice.

  • Any connection do you think with Word Wizard?

    Edit: Sound Lantern is Basil Miles; Word Wizard was founded by Rufus Miles.

  • I also sent him a message on his website. Let's wait and see.

  • His profile now says 'sorry guys didn't realise this was spam', so it seems to have worked.

  • I think John deleted his account. Well, he knows how to apologize anyway. Otherwise, he'll have one less SL user tomorrow.

    November 5, 2008

  • Personal message in my inbox, on his website:

    Hi, please apologize to the community for me, i did no realize it was spamming, i don't know how to delete comments. BR

  • (By the way: apologize and realize don't sound British to me!)

  • They're well established British usage, actually; we just have the -ise alternative in common usage too. Now if he'd said analyze, that would suggest a non-Brit.
