OK guys. I suggest at this point that we actually stop arguing about who said what to whom and return to the subject.


Your post ninja'd mine - more than happy to oblige.

I'm sure you understand why I deleted it then, PDR.

Well it allows certain dubious allegations to remain unanswered, but if that's your wish then I will live with it.

Would that it had been.

Seriously, do you think that posting a provocative remark like that would have been likely to close down the debate?

Peace had been achieved. Did you really need to start stirring things up again?

No, I didn't. And I would probably have left well alone if I hadn't read dr.bob's arrogant post saying that his was "the final comment".

The whole point of a discussion forum like this is that anyone can add what they like to a thread. How can anyone presume to say that theirs is "the final comment"?

I think Bob meant it was the final comment of his post, not that it was intended to be the last word in the discussion, Guy.

Not just what he meant, but what he explicitly said: (my bold)

I think you owe him an apology, Guy.

OK, fair enough. I misunderstood.

But I do find it odd that he thinks that the "final comment" in a post is not allowed to be challenged.

You continue to misunderstand.

Oh, I understand. Using offensive language is OK if you're one of the (unseen) moderators, but not otherwise.

I think dr.bob should withdraw that comment. Saying "the rest of my post was full of information" appears to be justification for being offensive on this forum.

GuyBarry - I'm a bit unsure about the nature of your complaint.

First you were annoyed that Dr Bob was trying to close down the conversation with a 'this is the last comment'.
When it was pointed out that that wasn't the case, you got annoyed about the offensive term.

The matter of the offensive term and who said what to whom argument had already been addressed, with all parties agreeing to close that particular discussion, and no further offence was offered or taken.
Someone used a naughty word, a discussion followed, then everyone agreed to drop it.

What exactly are you hoping to achieve?

Probably nothing, and I apologize for prolonging the thread unnecessarily. Maybe it should be locked now.

Nope. There may come a moment where it can be of (proper) use again.
