Spillchucking wud b "overly strict" and "irrelevant".

(I would try a better illustration mangling syntax and grammar,
if I could be confident of treading the line between making a point

It's possible, though unlikely, that the above could be part of an

That's tells us for certain (s)he simply doesn't have a clue.
An informed view might concievably take issue with parts of the
