    Thanks for the clarification. I must admit, I didn't know that religion and race were off limits, though of course I can understand why. I think when some threads are closed they may have been edited prior to closing so the reason for closing isn't always as clear as it might be. I missed the earlier suggestion to PM the moderators to check for content matter or ask questions. That seems to be the best idea.

    Verification of species is always welcomed and in so saying this is an open invitation to one and all to venture to my little corner of the world for said verification anytime the ability arises. Though El Seybo doesn't offer much as a hub for sightseeing it does offer many different species of which 'tourists' isn't one of them. Though occasionally you will see a few hanging out the back of a tour truck or sitting in a passing tour bus gawking as they pass through town on their way to wherever. It is also suggested that if you wish to venture here that you know a little Spanish as English is virtually never spoken here. That is unless you wish to speak only to me.

    Of course in the process of verification it is suggest that said analysis be undertaken by more then one person as the 'objectivity' of the grader is always subjected to 'opinion'. Darn, there we are faced with that word opinion again!!!

    The comma is an annoyance in written language which only delays the reader from reaching the end of the sentence and ultimately frustrates the reader. Unlike the full stop (or period) which means exactly that - STOP right there now mister!!!! the comma is a warning that one can choose to ignore without any real consequences (like a security guard who is really a pretend cop) but the full stop will definitely get one in big trouble - if you miss a period all hell will break loose. That's it period.
