...are you drunk?
. . on that lovely poem you printed up there.
sorry about the parson!!! - shall i explain? if no, please jump to "end"!
you see forum rules dont allow jargon but some time ago a computer person talked about the "parser" - that's jargon.
its a little computer routine that looks at a string of alphabetic/numeric/other characters being input to check for things, like swearing frinstance. - it's like parsing a sentence.
it usually changes or assigns things on the fly like replacing bad words with ###s
modern computerers write these routines (which they call objects) in drossy high-level languages which they go to great trouble to make abstruse. me, i do this stuff in assembler which is clear and easy to understand (and results in smaller hugely faster objects).
but i read the post as "the parson must have deleted it" or what ever it was. so when ever i refer to how the abrsm computer alters things, like putting capital initials on a topic title, i reckon it's the parson doing it!
Sorry for my sense of humour.
