I knew this thread was eventually going to be unlocked! I remember that time I got a bit too far, and I could have been banned for that. Now for some new stuff:

"Highest class of road you have defecated alongside".

I can (not proudly) say "Interstate".
Well, close: https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=4969.0

You’ll notice cl94’s question was raised in that thread.

Any post or thread along the lines of "a statement I made earlier was incorrect."

We have actually had a number of posts containing apologies.  Forum search returns 26 pages' worth of results containing the string {apolog} (no braces), which should match apologies, apologize, apology, etc.  I certainly agree there are instances where regulars fail to acknowledge errors that they have made, but this is not the same as saying such acknowledgments never happen.

The irony is that in a historical context it actually is a fairly relevant topic regarding how modern road networks developed.

Yeah, but those could be "so-and-so owes me an apology."

No doubt, but a lot of the quoted snippets on the first page of results are variants of the phrase "I apologize . . ."

About IATA codes, I like the initials of the Chinese Proficiency Test, as they match the code of the closest airport to me: HSK

Expanding to ICAO codes, too bad Ivory Coast doesn't have an airport with ICAO code DIPG (see above). I think we had a thread about airport codes before.
