Because the comment was attached to what I was saying and not out there loose for the general populace, yeah, I thought you were talking to me Thanks for clearing that up.
I agree, there is so much out there and some of it outdated... don't even get me started on the verbatim copious paragraph quotes from the latest writing teacher... that it's hard to obtain any kind of straight answer.
What works, as far as I'm concerned, is what works for the individual.
It's one of the reasons I don't like a lot of things like "grammarly." very helpful in many instances but it's getting to the point where, when you read some folks' work you can tell which program they use.
