Abuse the auditor

Hi, I'm Frank and I'm an auditor. For my sins, I am either in Switzerland or the US.

I'm open to a torrent of abuse now. Don't worry, it won't feature in my final report

As a user, I am confused.

As an auditor, how would you suggest we fix this?

P.S. Welcome!!!

it's just an internet forum so these things should not be earth-shattering. Plus it appeared that I could not use "Frank" or "FrankS" (rightly so) but could use "Frank S".

besides, I tell you what is wrong not how to fix it. There are consultants for that bit

Bit unfriendly of the other Frank to "groan" me because of this tho'

Re: Abuse the auditor

Welcome. I hope you're not one of these Auditors though? Otherwise the recent changes to the EF will be as nothing...

Maybe one of the mods can change your tagline to "Not FrankS". That should clear things up...

Re: Abuse the auditor

Stranger than Fiction is one of my favorite movies so I'm partial to auditors.

Welcome.
