Thus, my guess was wrong.

Is the phrase spoken? Is the speaker HAM? HAF? HCM? HCF? Is the one to whom the phrase is spoken relevant?

Is the phrase spoken? yes, or thought, either way Is the speaker HAM? HAF? this one HCM? HCF? Is the one to whom the phrase is spoken relevant? not really, it's a general cry from the HAF

In order to touch something, the speaker and the others involved had to go through a set of procedure? go through an obstacle course?
Is it something the speaker can touch normally but failed just that one time when the phrase was spoken?

So when she says "What's wrong with me" she's expressing frustration at not being able to touch the books while the others can, right? Does she need a certain level of authority or clearance to touch the books? Which the others have? But she doesn't?

Not sure how Amazon works, cause I haven't been using them. But here is a shot in the dark.

Do you have to confirm something when ordering from them? And the only way to do that is by clicking on a link provided in a mail they send you (something I've often seen when registering my details on websites)? And because they read it as minimum.com instead of mini-mum.com, you never get the e-mail?

Just totally puzzled about how you know is the e-mail address if you never get any errormessages, lol

When you try to log in, you enter your e-mail address right? Then your password? And then you click 'sign in using our secure server'? Are you then simply back on the log in page? with no codes or explanations?

When you try to log in no - I'm not allowed to do that, you enter your e-mail address right? Then your password? And then you click 'sign in using our secure server'? Are you then simply back on the log in page? with no codes or explanations? so all the rest is n/a

Remember this is SILLY

Does something happen when you type the word "mini-Mum"? Does it redirect you to another website?

Lynne, can you please clarify a confusing point? When I asked 'when you try to log in', you replied that you are not allowed to do that. but you answered Baling 'I can log in if I like, I'm just not allowed to purchase anything'????

What I was looking for was the following. When you are on the Amazon page, you click on the Sign In button. Then you are asked to enter your e-mail address and password, and then click Sign in using our secure server' to log on. Are you not even allowed to click the Sign in-button?

Is there anything relevant about your computer? keyboard? mouse? keyboard settings?

Lynne, can you please clarify a confusing point? When I asked 'when you try to log in', you replied that you are not allowed to do that. but you answered Baling 'I can log in if I like, I'm just not allowed to purchase anything'???? Fair point - this is actually fictional and very silly, but based on something I see that 'forbids' me to order. At first I maintained the fiction, then I repeatedly said this is Silly, and am now trying to help by letting it be known that it is not literal

Is there anything relevant about your computer? keyboard? mouse? keyboard settings?

So based on what I've just said, none of those questions can really have a yes or no answer without causing further confusion. The only thing that is relevant is the fact that I am known as MiniMum, or minimum, or mini-mum (the three are interchangeable)

Would the site assume you wanted the Minimum possible purchase - nothing? Would someone named Maximum have this same problem? A different problem?

Forbidden, eh? Does the site associate the word "minimum" with something else? Something bad? Is a crime relevant?

I think this one is limping to a dead end. That's fine, it happens. I'm gonna go straight ahead and spiol in a few hours. This is so ripe for swooping in and spioling. Here's your chance! Sunshine - are you out there?? ;-)

I keep getting emails from places like Amazon which offer free delivery or the like, but they then go and say
"No Minimum Order"

Forehead slap!!!!

Can't believe we didn't get that. This is one of the few puzzles I've seen where I was so stumped I could not think of a single question to ask and yet the solution is mind blowingly simple. Major kudo's Lynne.

And also it afforded you the opportunity to use my favourite "word" in the english language ..HARUMPH.

A model Major indeed, except I wager that he's Major Kudo with the apostrophe in the Forum - in which case he's a rogue and a cad.
