    I most certainly did not.

    It was Dangle who did that when he used the phrase "a lovely young girl" as if her looks were a key part of his post. No one has yet answered the question: would Dangle have considered the event “a real feel good story" if the child had been ugly? If the answer is "yes" then why are you so annoyed that I asked the question? Is it that you have a sneaking suspicion the answer might have been "no"?

    He literally described *her* as lovely. Not her looks. You were the one who assumed he meant looks when there was no evident reason to do so.

    Err Dangie said she was lovely. It was you who interpreted this to mean looks. The rest of us interpreted this to mean personality.

    Lovely young girl doesn’t refer to her looks. I know some lovely people who are by no means pretty or even good looking. You assumed he was referring to her looks. You are the one with a problem, looking for things that aren’t there probably just for the sake of it.

    There are times on this forum when I find myself amending and updating some classic lines from literature;-

    Ask not for whom the bell tolls
    Ask rather for whom the bell end trolls

    A genuine R.T.B.C. ... ( I think )
    To-day our postman delivered a letter from the Department of Work and Pensions addressed to myself.
    <chatty start> "Now that you are approaching 80" ---(Gee, thanks)
    <then> "You are entitled to a higher amount of State pension" (Yeeee Harrr; we're in the money)
    <detail> "Age Addition of 25p. per week will be payable from your 80th Birthday"
    With my head swimming with emotion I thought "What the @?>~#%£ &*++ can I spend all that on?"
    Wife and I calculated that by September 2020, if I save it up we can buy an extra bottle of wine-- Wow!!!

    No it isn't, you took a perfectly innocently written post and turned it into something it was not just to fit your own perverse narrative
