Why can't I post anymore without the threat of being put in this thread looming in the back of my mind?  This thread haunts me.

I think you technically need an elipsis at the end there since there is more to my original sentence.

That said, I knew that someone would pick this one up pretty quickly.

Yes, but since it's the "taken out of context" thread, who really cares that there's more to the sentence? That would be context, and we can't have that.

Okay, technically, you're correct.  But since this is a message board and not a published academic work, I sometimes let minor stylistic matters like these slide.

Yes, but it's the "Taken out of context" thread not the "misquoted" thread.

There's a big difference.

I still fail to see how one gets labeled a curmudgeon when one acts exactly like everyone else.

Yes.  There is.  For example, I was taking your words out of context before.  Here, I'm flagrantly misquoting you.
