Dear X-namer, Here’s an insight: This might sound like a silly thing to do, but try reading and following the basic rules of the game (that’s that writing over on the left hand side of the page) and you will discover some useful information including the fact that we have previously discussed this subject AD NAUSEAM!

It mean someone else had his hand in an event.
Some story is a bit far fetch or doesn't seem clear, possibly there was an outside influence we don't know of.

For a sight that is dedicated to lovers of the English language, it is certainly getting abused by individuals who obviously know nothing about it (particulary the Mr./Mrs. No Names or "––"). Secondly, to "––" number one, also known as X- Namer, what type of establishment do you work for where your co-workers say things like that? Never mind, I can do a better job at guessing. He/she didn't give you a hint of its definition by the way it was used in a sentence? As for the others, some who shall remain nameless, (no pun intended), remember, it is better for one to suspect your stupidity than for you to open your mouth and leave no doubt. You should be getting the jist in 5, 4, 3, 2, . . ."

The good people who operate this site are not being paid. They're certainly not being paid to answer the same, rudely asked question, repeatedly, when there is a simple tool available for finding the answer your self.

Ken, Erik, et all, I apologize for the flame. It probably won't happen again.

Suicide is regarded as an honorable way out if you find your assignment too challenging.
