I agree, but when a judge passes sentence, he or she has to go through a process of "appeal-proofing". This means that the judge has to list everything in his sentence that could reasonably form...

Oh yes, I forgot about her! I met her too when I was about the same age, when she came to our school. I think she was a friend of one of the teachers. She said that she had terrible handwriting,...

Fickle world, innit? Of the three main stars of HP, I think that Grint had the most potential and yet he doesn't seem to have shone as brightly as the other two. Hopefully his time will come.
