Do you often make these wild leaps to silly conclusions?

(I note that you wrote in another post that you have good weather for
your outdoor line-drying => lots of those "good breezy drying days". I
guess you stopped reading what I wrote before you got to the "if".)

There's much better ways to quote than that.

Guess again. I never ever said that its always breezy when I line dry, fool.

Lets go thru this very very slowly for the terminally stupid.

My clothes are not stiff and boardy when I line dry them on days with no wind at all.

may be neutralized.
