    Hi Old Joe,

    Just as a demonstration of how tiresome your word-smithing is, permit me to momentarily join that unnecessary cohort.

    " Over and out" is improper communication discipline. "Over" means I'm done and expect a reply. "Out" means the exchange is finished. These are mutually exclusive and should never be used together. I expected your military experience taught that lesson.

    This form of exchange is boorish ( thanks to Old Joe's alert, I edited a misspelling here) and nonproductive. I don't practice it.


    Best Wishes.
  • Wrong again, MJG. "Over" indicates "Your turn to speak", and "Out" means "No more from this station". Perfectly acceptable to combine the two to say "Your turn, no more from here".

    Not a legitimate word, MJG.

    Mostly Just Gas.
