The way I understand it (notice that I'm not a native English speaker
either -- I have learned the meaning from observation), it's what
parents typically do to children when they do something wrong, or
disobedient, or insolent, etc. Being grounded typically involves
going to your room and not being allowed to watch TV or to go out to
play with your friends, etc.; or in more severe cases, it could involve
being asked/forced to stand close to a wall/corner facing the wall.
Obviously, I was using it in a humorous way, implying that you had
done something so terrible (imagine, using *Sony* headphones!!) that
you deserved to be punished...
Anyway, enough with the teasing/kidding around... We're already
way off-topic for a DSP newsgroup :-)
