That's a nice answer, but I feel it's a cop-out. A: Which conjugation is correct? B: The correct thing to do is write something else. A: ...that's a good answer to a different question. Are they suggesting that it is impossible to conjugate the verb "to have" for the phrase "he nor I"? If so, that is quite a ridiculous bug in the language.
