    I certainly don't mind, but I sure got reprimanded for cheating on 'trivia'.

      I think it's different in this case because you had already posted the answer which was "yes". It's not like the situation where someone says he/she has looked up the answer to one of those birthday questions and the entire universe of gold medal winners is still out there to be guessed.

        Twenty years ago, when I was posting trivias
        on this board, I said it was VERBOTEN to check anywhere to answer... You should have remembered! Sure Atticus Tafnut did. 😉

                  Right....we've had lots of great trivia questions here and the main criteria is asking the question precisely.

                  If you ask yes or no....the answer is yes or no.

                    and yet . . . the thread the persisted after the answer was evident . . . very strange.

                    Much as we both enjoy endlessly arguing pointless points, I'll just assume gh said stop. You may go last.
