I'm not sure that I can explain so you can understand since you don't fair well with the English language.

Google is your friend, plus you can hopefully translate to a language that you understand.

"Fair well"? A textbook case of the blind leading the blind.

Fair;
Quote:
excerpt from answers.com 'fair';

#8 Consistent with rules, logic, or ethics: a fair tactic.
I could continue but you seem to not understand 'fair well'.

As to 'fare well' would mean to provide the means to travel well or provide the means to fare oneself to a destination. The word 'fare' is not applicable to my meaning as to 'fair well'. My usage is not improper in my mind. I hope you have your cane handy!

I agree with Lutusp

dictionary.com

Quote:

–verb (used without object)
7. to experience good or bad fortune, treatment, etc.; get on: He fared well in his profession.

8. to go; turn out; happen (used impersonally): It fared ill with him.

9. to go; travel.

Hi,

In my presentation and I'm not arguing your definition I did mean 'fair'.
