agree  Jane Lamb-Ruiz: This is WRONG plain WRONG
18 hrs
  -> Thank you, Ms, Lamb-Ruiz. You certainly refer to your punctuation, don't you?

agree  Bob Haskell: A "precedent" is a previous decision, or something that establishes a pattern. "Procedente" seems to refer to "la persona que procede" - que procede a contestar. Está raro, pero estoy de acuerdo que NO es "precedent".

  -> Babylon: procedente = precedent, preceding, previous. Check at www.babylon.com

disagree  spanruss: How strange! Both peers disagreed, yet marked agree, and the asker then awarded the points to an obviously incorrect answer.

  -> The second agree came almost three years later. Your disagreement comes almost 5 years later. I can't remember anything, it's been a long time.
