If starting sentences with "and" confuses you, well, I think that somewhat compromises your view that you have a superior grasp on the english language. Further compromising your view is your confusion over my use of the word "assuming." The meaning of that word is far more clear in that context than <arguably ambiguous word in question> was on that LG.
This is seriously a waste of time. Everyone involved in this argument used the correct interpretation on the game. The only difference is that you don't see how it could have validly (though less so) been interpreted another way.
Absolute, "the earth is round" level of certainty is warranted in this case. It could not have validly been interpreted another way. HTH.
