Thanks for the input. actually the thread I was looking for wasn't even my post, I had replied to it because I found it interesting, and was wondering if anyone had added anything, but when I went to look It was gone. it's not a thing or anything.

Also Steve, remember to post the context or word in the title. You might want to read the rules of the forum again which are at the top of the page in blue.

Hi Steve
Sally is quite correct in what she has said. We are trying to gets members to adhere to the rules of the forum. They are clearly outlined at the top of the forum page as a sub heading. Sometimes inappropirate headings do get through. If there are a number of replies, we let them stay and just advise the member of the rules. If the replies are minimal, these posts are usually deleted and the member advised as to the reason why.

To me, from a "human" point of view, it makes more sense to have a subject as a subject of a verb, don't you think? A logical and consistent language is easy to learn, to translate, to interpret, to decode by machines... On top of that, I have witnessed countless times how Spanish speakers doubted for a short while how to say sentences including "gustar", in which the subject was a 1st or a 2nd person (most of the time is in 3rd person), and even make mistakes, get confused, and try to figure out what went wrong. For objects in 3rd person is pretty straight forward, but once you introduce two people in the equation, the logic doesn't come easy for natives either... because it is confusing to our way of thinking.

English has successfully simplified many structures and words, and yet is a language capable to accurately express very complex ideas. The main problem (and not the only one) is that it is one of the most illogical languages in the world when it comes to spelling, and that confuses everyone!

It could have been posted under the wrong section or the content of the topic could have been questionable and one of the administrators deleted it.
