"open" as in "open fire range"?

I don't understand that comment, manon. Would you care to explain?

you know, someone's brain is open for business, i.e. working

I think mine's working. Mind you, I'm not an engineer or even a physicist, so I don't know what kind of brain I might have. For what it's worth, my brain tells me the subject there was the thread, not someone's brain.

So someone's brain was open for business? Really?

I'm trying to respond to a few people so I may be mistaken in my response to you

It's obvious that you originally meant "'open' as in 'unrestricted content'", so why not just say that?

because there have been no restrictions on content.

I don't think manon likes other people speaking for her, Mig.

sorry - I thought I was talking about closed minds

Migeru said "open" as in "open fire range", and you thought it was about closed minds so you said "open for business"?

Look, let's be kind and say you must have been very confused. And didn't mean to make unfortunate insinuations about this site and the way it's run, or the people, Jerome first, who put in a huge amount of their time here for 0 kopeks.
