Ottava, we all know that you can never admit to being wrong. However, unless you can find anyone but yourself who said that Malleus and this other person are "in the same town", you are obviously wrong.

And why did you say "act defensive"? If you'd taken your English as a foreign language course, you'd know the difference between an adjective and an adverb.

Are roommates not in the same community? Really? Really?

You are daft.

Christ! Check the Webster's Collegiate Dictionary you value so highly. To room can mean "to accommodate with lodgings", can't it? He obviously means that they are partners in a service to provide lodgings. They don't have to be in the same ruddy town to do that.

Of course you conveniently forget to explain your illiterate use of an adjective instead of an adverb.

o.O

Are you honestly trying to argue that I am wrong to say that someone rooming together is someone who lives in the same town?

Wow. Your trolling has gone to new heights.

I'm saying that you bloody well need to read a dictionary. One possible meaning is that they are partners providing rooms to third parties. As such, they needn't be in the same area.

Actually, another meaning is that they are sharing a room in a farmhouse out in the country, but ypu wouldn't know that some people don't live in towns.

Really? So sharing an apartment would mean not living together in your fantasy world.

Nobody's bloody well saying they're sharing an apartment. People don't live in apartments in England, but you wouldn't know that because you know shit about England. Secondly, as I said, if you understood English you'd know that "rooming together" doesn't necessarily mean they're living together. Thirdly, even if they are living together they might be out in the country, not in a town at all.

Don't you ever get tired of your nonsense? Google thinks the UK has apartments. They also don't quibble between "flat" or "apartment" unlike your trollish claims.

Thanks for confirming my point 100%. Google knows ignorant Pakistanis like you call flats apartments, so they've arranged that if you search for apartments you'll find flats. But what's the first hit on your own bloody search? "London property - Flats and houses for sale or to rent in London" - flats, nothing about apartments! I couldn't have proved your fuckwittedness better whatever I'd done!

What an ungrateful fuckwit! Google has a great feature to help illiterate idiots who think that British people live in apartments, and you call it a conspiracy!
