In the very unlikely (imo) event that Madeleine is alive, there is one fact that stands out. Had her parents made sure that she was protected she would never have been separated from them. Kate McCann said;

Nothing is more important to us than finding our little girl. [madeleine, introduction]

Had protecting their little girl been their priority there would have been no need to find her.
In your opinion then all children who go missing have not been properly protected by their parents?

Those are your words (again) not mine.
No-one here believes the parents were directly involved in MM's disappearance because belief without evidence is useless.

It was a question.  You could just say “no”, or agree with it if you do.

Grammatically it isn't a question. It's a declaration by you of what my opinion is, with a question mark tagged onto the end of it.

Now you’re just deflecting by coming over all grammar Nazi-ish.  In my most humble worthless opinion of course.

I have no need to deflect, no question was asked, despite your claim that it was. What was the question you think you were asking?

Are you seriously unable to work it out yourself? I thought you were bright.  Obviously I was mistaken, so here is my question again, written grammatically correctly to enable you (hopefully) to fully comprehend it:
“In your opinion then have all children who go missing not been properly protected by their parents?”
I misplaced one word in the original and you made a pedantic issue of it.  Utterly pathetic IMO.

I'm bright enough to recognise a question when I see one. The answer is no, imo not all children who go missing have not been properly protected by their parents. I was referring to one case and for some reason you chose to suggest I was referring to every case of missing children.

Obviously I don't know the circumstances surrounding every case involving a missing child. I do know that some are never returned to a parent's custody, being kept away by their other parent, so the parent with custody isn't to blame. Other children run away, which makes it difficult for parents to prevent. So all cases are different, as I'm sure you know if you think about it.

"Misplacing" a word can change the meaning of a sentence.

FYI sentences with a question mark at the end are questions, no matter what order thr words are in before it.  Hope that’s clear now.

IMO it could be argued that each and every small child who has an accident or wanders off never to be seen again has not been “properly protected” by their parents.  Yet we make allowances for most other fsmous cases of disappeared or murdered small children and choose not to continue to heapblame and fury on their parents.  It appears that the McCanns are a special case, still being criticised and accused 14 years after the event.  Can someone explain why these two are so utterly despised when others are not?

once maddie  turns   18  even if she is dead people on this forum wont  be able to use   words like the parents of a missing  child etc because   18 isnt  a  child   going back to my OP do you  think if maddie is alive and knows  english and knows who she is  she would  want to contact the mcanns now??

No doubt it will now be 'parents of missing teenager'  That'll have a couple of year's mileage in it.
