You do realise I'm breaking all the rules of gentlemanly protocol by interacting with you chaps without first having exchanged formal letters of introduction?

and, therefore, no further clarification of the questioner's intent is required. To do so would be tautological.
Whilst you are 100% correct that my question could
be answered by a simple 'Yes' or 'No' anyone behaving in this way would be, obviously, a bad person and probably hail from some New World province and former colony...
And +1 for The Stooges!
