Just as a side note Sarah, in some cultures/languages, "I want" is
extremely impolite, almost insulting to your interlocutor. In France,
if you want to quickly upset someone, simply say "I want you to do this
or that". The polite form is "I would like you to do that", "I would
appreciate..." or "let's do that", and when you're slightly upset or
in a hurry, better simply say "do that" without putting yourself
prominently as the one who has some unexplained reasons for demanding
something.

With that said, this thread has probably lived too long. I think we're
starting to fuck flies, and once we won't have any living flies left,
someone will have to bring new files, and it's certainly not me.

Regards,
Willy
