    You can see things the way you want. Rather than say he was wrong, I questioned it by saying "I didn't know it would be reversed". I did know it wouldn't be though, so letting him correct it himself was my approach. What would you have done?

    I agree, and I see your point.

    y'all should e-read #29
    Here's the relevant part:
    = normal
    as opposed "to upside down" which would be "reversed".

    Perhaps my choice of words/phrase led y'all to make erroneous assumptions?

    We all, often, see what we expect to see instead of what is there to see.

    Wait. Q_W says that you edited it to correct it. That is was initially wrong.

    When I do edit as per others insights I normally thank them and mention the edit.

    Hm, I quoted him in my reply and he did say up side up. I misread it. My error. When I said he corrected it, I meant in the following post, where it looked like he was agreeing with me, but instead, he thought he was correcting me, yikes, what confusion, lol.
