  1. @Daily magyar,
    I do not know how to access them on my keyboard ; and I probably never will.
    So magyar, what is your opinion of the article highlighting the swimming achievements of Katinka Hosszu ?
    By the way, your use of punctuation marks are back to front ; exclamation mark comes before question mark and there should be a space after the word ‘names’.
    We are not hear to criticize each other, but to admire the achievements of Katinka.
    The grammar police are so tiresome.
