    It was just a minor typo. If you quote someone, then change your mind and don't make the post, it can leave the original quote in. If you then quote someone else you need to make sure that the first quote is fully removed. In this case, there was a single line left in that attributed a quote to you, followed by the correct attribution to Faithful Bantam. That first rogue line, seems to have taken priority (don't ask me why). I.m sure @SimonW could explain it better.

    It isn’t a minor typo when it is attributing quotes to the wrong person. A minor typo is making a minor error not claiming someone else said something

    Ah, I know what you're talking about now!

    I think I must have pressed the 'quote' button accidentally on the countdown thread most likely. It saved your quote the next time I replied to something. Sure I deleted it though.

    Sorry, I should have been clearer, it was a minor typo that caused the problem.
