    And the question was;

    'Wasn't that what you were doing?'

    no, it was a statement, which said "But I thought you had done that."

    No, it was a comment suggesting that I thought you were acting like another member.

    It was a statement that needed confirmation or denial.

    A common use of conversational English.

    We actually teach that, you know, but you being a tefler for such a short time may not be aware of that.

    Do you always address the second person singular like that?

    Using a third person's name?

    Really? Please find a link anywhere on the internet to back this common use of English language, I obviously need educating. And I did reply "no" to your "statement that needed confirmation or denial"

    Not always, as you well know. But thanks for the pedantic question.

    Seems quite topical to rethink this one.
