"Lucky you to live on the continent"

Eh?

He's called PatrickLondon. There's probably a reason for that. Does cigale just not understand English?

Or do some of these weird colonial dialects use "continent" in their own quaint way?

"continent" was used correctly by cigale.
I understood perfectly.

flanneruk, my post was directed at patrick not you.
If he wants to tell me it's not ok, that's ok.

I don't think that patrick will impose any punishment for this semantic slip.
