You baffle me...

Dear Anonymouse,
As a rule I refuse to answer anonymice, but in this case I do not hesitate.
Either you did not take the trouble to look around on this site (other people's questions, nor the answers, are interesting enough for you?) or you're trying to fool me: just a few days ago I wrote an answer to a question titled "Luffing up", in which I explained how square-rigged ships tack. When you've got rid of that foolish blush and have your normal complexion back, you can read that and tell me if you want further information; but then use your name.
