@solipsister,
Hi Solipsister

Can any of our members tell me what is wrong with Solipsister? She is always confusing me with her answers.

@tanguatlay,
Nothing wrong. Solipsister thinks you are advertising, which you might be if you had included more info.

Either of your sentence forms is correct. "Under" gives a sense of submission, perhaps respect for the teacher. "By" gives more of a sense of learning as commercial transaction.

@spikepipsqueak,
Thanks, Spikepipsqueak.

This is not the first time Solipsister has been giving irrational replies. I think she needs to be counselled.

So far, because of Solipsister's irrational reply, no member/s have replied to my post, thanks again to her.

Many thanks.

@tanguatlay,
Firstly, what am I, chopped liver? That was an accurate answer, if you don't agree with it, why are you asking for help in the first place?

Secondly, don't make personal, snarky comments about people. It's not appreciated.

@spikepipsqueak,
Sorry, Spikepipsqueak.

If you had read my earlier posts, you would have noticed that Solipsister has always treated my questions as though they were for a joke column.

Being confused by her, I had not read your reply more carefully. After reading your latest response, I went back to your earlier post and, yes, you had indeed replied to my question and I have to say it makes sense to me.

Once again, my apologies and, of course, many thanks for your help.
