So more of his rubbish a thread that's not really about what he said it was about.

Probably about time his oxygen got cut off.

Why doesn't he just name his suspect? Or if he hasn't got one **** off?

Of course you didn't. You didn't deem it necessary to list all the other possible subjects that it wasn't about!

In the opening post of this thread you claimed that it was not about the GSG:-

Quote:
This thread is not about the GSG in itself but it is about the expression
"not for nothing".

In this thread anyone can publish versions of this expression, so that we may have a collection of different uses of it.

I therefore invite those who have some examples to publish them here.

The only requirement is that the examples contain the construction "not for nothing" and were written by authors born in Victorian times or earlier, but preferably Victorian times.

Firstly, the expression was constructed like this in the GSG (just a reminder, no discussion about the GSG now). (My emphasis).
Either it is or it isn't. If it is about the GSG you should be honest and concede the point. If it is not about the GSG then your references to it are off topic. Make your mind up. You can't have it both ways!

Hi Bridewell

It is not about the GSG but about the people who tried to understand the GSG.

And thanks for the reference to the post with the reference to the Penny Illustrated.

Cheers, Pierre

Because you can know what people thought about the GSG without knowing about the GSG and even better you can work out what they thought about it by discussing a phrase not even in it.

Sheesh, give us a break.

I share Pierre's view that a man who can spell "nothing" can probably also spell "Jews". Where we differ is in his believing that two men reading the word "Judges" could both transcribe it without either of them including a 'd' or a 'g'. I think that scenario is as unlikely as anything ever posted on Casebook that didn't relate to Vincent Van Gogh or Toulouse Lautrec.
