I hope you aren't implying that people are on here having fun, are you?
I'm on here in the name of pure science.
Incidentally, is 'controverted' actually a word or is it like the opposite of inscrutable ('scrutable')?
For the record, you've made a strong case but not a final one. Maybe not even "a one". As I've said myself, it's perfectly likely that he was writing "a one off-instance" rather than "a one-off instance". Tragically for your incontrovertible argument, the writer declined my generous offer of a free hypen, leaving me with all the controversion I require to keep the ball in play and the game in motion.
