Thread for footnotes, clarification, corrections etc

I thought this could be useful? I often feel like things I post to ilx do not come across as I intended and want to post clarification, but then it's a slippery slope to the entire thread being dominated by posts where I defensively reformulate the previous post, and I realise that that this is more of a narcissistic urge than something that benefits anyone else. So I thought I could put those posts here, hopefully other people will want to post their footnotes, clarification, corrections etc so this doesn't come across as narcissistic vanity thread.

it just sounds like the lamest alibi ever, "nah I never listen to that station, I just hear it at the uhh radio shop"

I do listen to it! Just tends to be specific programs via the iplayer, so I don't have to risk hearing Mark Radcliffe asking his listeners to send him puns.

I'm worried I came across here like I was indignant that Wins was suggesting that I was pretending not to listen to 6 Music, when I wasn't indignant, the exclamation mark after 'I do listen to it' was meant to be mock-indignant but I'm concerned it came across as arsey or pedantic, sorry Wins.
