well actually I promised to help a friend, and I'm in the middle of
exams (gcses in case you forgot) which is why I put I'm only 16 and that
I don't have time. Typing an email and continuing revision is a hell of
a lot quicker than researching it. Of course, if any of you do have
time, then that is why you are on here. If you never have time, then
obviously being on here is not for you. However, you obviously do have
enough time, because you wrote unnecessary sarcy comments everywhere -
possibly enough time to research the question properly. Nobody else has
ever had a problem with my age, and I don't see why you should. I
figured pointing out my age would help people understand better if I
wrote weird things. If you want to have a go at me, please email me
personally, off the mailing list.

Btw, thanks for the advice.
