@Walter Hinteler,
I only heard 'dot' mentioned for the first time by a Brit naval officer in 1970 - I'd been quite often before in England and never heard it.

Maybe it was (is?) a Royal Navy thing? They are still famously addicted to their own words for things.

@Walter Hinteler,
Thank you, Walter. I know what I heard and I know I wasn't wrong about it coming from Brits.

@Ragman,
I can't imagine how you would ever have heard a British person say "dot" and not "point" because it's never used! Like literally!

@Tes yeux noirs,
Point proven to my earlier comment. We do not use dot. And if you want to be right about everything check your facts before you post them!! @Ragman

@Ragman,
Fully aware of what I wrote thanks.
Fully aware of what the hell I was talking about too, as my question has now been answered by someone who clearly understood!
And by the way, I wasn't being defensive! Don't make remarks like you know how I am acting!!

@lillegs,
If you had wanted to know how many yards were contained in a mile, you should have asked.

Sheesh!

@lillegs,
In the future why not try asking a direct clearly worded question that makes it most obvious what you're asking.
What a friggin bozo!

@roger,
Had I wanted to know how many yards where in a mile I would have asked exactly that.... But I didn't!! What does that tell you?!

@Ragman,
My question was simple. You just totally overthought it. And as for the name-calling....5 years old are you?! Moron.

@lillegs,
Go back to your ESL class. The majority of people here didn't understand your query. And your defensive petulance here sure as hell isn't earning you any respect, to say the least.

You insulting *****. I don't want your respect. If you don't like what's being said then don't involve yourself. Pathetic!

@lillegs,
Composition and comprehension are not your strong suits - nor is maturity. The impression you're forming on this forum, becomes indelible the more you continue.

Just out of curiosity, how old are you? 16?

Immature huh?! Whatever mate! You're insulting and pathetic! Don't judge someone you don't know. Guess that's the kind of ignorant person you are though.

@lillegs,
Does it occur to you you are being just a taddy bit obsessive? Well, drag the thread out as long as your heart desires. I think the rest of us will move along.
