OK, I didn't not insert anything into the quoted wording of AlanR's post. I quoted his original post verbatim. Looking at the time stamps of his post and my post, I suspect (but don't know for sure) that AlanR edited his post to remove the reference to "flat and gloss paints" after
I had quoted the original wording. Any edit done by AlanR would not be reflected in the subsequent posts.
I have assumed AlanR's original wording (as shown in my quoted wording) was a comic reference to paints being "flat" like a Nicad battery
might be flat but I don't really know what he was thinking or why he might have edited his post.
If this isn't the correct explanation of why the reference is in my quoted wording and not in his, then it must have been the internet
faeries messing with CF.
To reiterate, I did not insert anything into AlanR's post - either the faeries inserted it or the faeries (or AlanR) removed it from AlanR's original post.
Clear as mud!
