Your pluralization of the word "forum" gives me pause but then I recall your magnificent collection of cuff links and I forgive you your elite command and control of the English language.

I avoid power clashing; however, I am frequently power wagging.

1. \tpower wagging \t
A term coined by NBC's 30 Rock. It's when you shake your index finger at someone to make a point to whatever you're saying.
Liz - "You're looking out for us, right? Pounding on desks and doing whatever this called." (she's shaking her index finger)

Jack - "Power wagging."

Let me introduce you to the country of Italy.

Yes, but I have cut down the clash quotient a bit since posting here, just to limit the calls for TITFD.

And you, metlin, were responsible for my alterations of my grey D/B suit, which was much better received after my Neapolitan-born alterations tailor had at it. (I've got more stuff for him to work on, BTW).

The pluralization of "forum" to "fora" comes not from my knowledge of English but from having been subjected to three years of Latin classes at a tender age - "forum" comes to English directly from Latin. Thank you, BTW, for the positive characterization of my cufflink collection.
