    I am well aware that "if I was" is not always incorrect, and that the issue is not always clear. But I do think that in the sentence that we're discussing here, the subjunctive was clearly called for. Note that the original question was posed in the present tense.

        You realize that the diversion was begun by the thread's originator, yes?

            Got to agree with Powell, I would have said cricket. Very surprised it's hockey, although it is clearly second.

                No. If anyone diverted the thread, it was I. Of course, at the time, I thought the thread was dead--the official answer had been provided and i didn't think there was much more to say about it.
