Nobody's Perfect Dept.

I've found that certain sounds are misrepresented in our dictionaries,
expecially ing. ink. ang. ank.  I've offered proof of this and told other
how to test it to prove me wrong.  I've offered opinions on other things.
This is hectoring?  No one has proven me wrong.

If you are in doubt as to whether you have permission to speak up for good
over bad, or right over wrong, all I can say is that lack of disapproval is
tacit approval.

You give your opinions. Is this not hectoring as well

What's your residence history.  I'd like folks are from and what their
dialect may be.
