    Q7 is it Farokh Engineer...NO
    Q8 is his name peculiar because he was actually an engineer...No (naturally)

    PS; I think its pretty harsh to ban for a guess. For the time being we will penalise by treating a wild guess(if wrong) as two queries.

    nah nah its alright, the whole point of doing that was that i would accept the ban, i would rather the rest of the people have an extra query than me being allowed to play thank you.

    No. I think, as I said before, a ban is too harsh. The idea is basicaly to avoid just a flurry of wild shooting. But I agree that sometimes a query will have to be in the form of a question.

    So its not a hard and fast rule yet, we are still in the nascent stage. Counting it as two queries is probably a fairer and more practical option.
