"Lynching" of course started as a punishment of Americal Loyalists by American Patriots. See your post below.

This is clearly a superior site and behind it, a curmudgeonly superior intellect. You, sir, appear to be a scribe of the very first order. I have just made reference to this. The fact that the inaccessible dearieme also appears here is testimony and I do enjoy his randomly dropped sense-bombs.

Dearieme, thanks for enlightening me. I wasn't aware of the fact.

Mr Higham, you do me an honour, but sadly the intellect does not live up to it. As for dearieme, always a pleasure.
