Re: REF: iris program

Chere Madame,

In the proper, straightforward inadequate language I've been taught, i would
translate your litotes full of nuances like this:
Not to mention/ To make things worse/ /
it is probably / it is absolutely //
 not wise / stupid //
 to create an  unfortunate impression
of tailgating.

Of course it is not as pretty, but the meaning gets more obvious, doesn't it.

  No sir, I did not. Your command of the language is not adequate  to grasp
  nuances. I suggest you bear this in mind before shaking a bony  finger at
  people who are responding to other people's posts.
