R_W, the question you asked of me, in your Post #150 (question, in Bold by me) : I answered that question in my Post #151 - and I did not answer it with a question! : If, on the off chance, that you were referring to either of these questions : I was not aware of any "conversational tenets or laws" that demands providing answers to "rhetorical questions". R_W, if I failed to answer a question, or answered one (other than a rhetorical one) with a question, it was in no way intentional on my part. If I have, indeed, done just that, then I am extremely sorry, and I humbly ask for your apology If you would, please, clarify which question is at issue, or, even possibly, repeat the question? I will be more than happy to address it.
