Don't be embarrassed. We are all learning how things work here. There are some no-nos in posting here that we sometimes are guilty of in an innocent way ( such as posting age or the grade you are in). I'm a grown up and I'm still learning the ways of things here.
Thanx pts are a way of showing appreciation for a person and the things that they do whether it is answer a question or help a newbie. And at 6000+ people here there are a lot of newbies so we all just try to help each other.
Thanx to you for gracefully dealing with your minor no-no.It was really nothing. Real embarrassment is being a teacher (me) and having a newscrew in my class taping a lesson ( can you imagine cameras in your class?). One student asked me to spell turquoise. I was flustered and we were a poor school with NO class dictionaries. I just blanked. I tried to gracefully deal with it by saying that we would spell it the best we could, circle it and consult a dictionary for editing at the end.
I will never forget how to spell turquoise again.
