    And have you noticed? Nothing has an affect anymore, neither is anything affected. They all have an impact. Everything is impacted upon. The Yank influence once more? What is happening to Kiwi English? That's the reason I started this post. Controversy is now being pronounced the Yankee way the same as quite a few other words. I don't want to be a Yank. I have no desire to speak the same as them. Next thing you know we'll be driving on the other side of the road and have railway (railroad?) locomotives with bells dinging all over the place. No thank you. And before you say so, I am not anti Yank as you may think - I am pro Kiwi. There's a big difference. I am very fond of our Kiwi way of life and would like to keep it that way.

    Gosh you go on Roscoe. We understand ..... You don't like Americans. You have told us so many many times. A bit like a cracked record. Give it a break man.

    You obviously did not read all of my post. I stated that 'I am not anti Yank as you may think - I am pro Kiwi. There's a big difference."

    I could not care less what you think of me. Your opinion is not at all important. To me you are a nobody. You do not count at all. Why should I worry what you think? I do not. So say what you like.

    You have also said that to others. Verbatim. Anyway, I don't mean to demean you Roscoe, you just go on about this. Guarantee if someone mentions "America" off you go on your diatribe. It just gets a bit annoying, so give it a break will you please.
