I am surpirsed that you, as an academic, proffer as 'evidence' that something is 'well-known'.  A little more rigour, please.

I stand by my opinions - if it is "well known" to myself that is plenty enough evidence for me, having no doubt more letters after my name than you have had hot dinners! Should it be required, I could supply "chapter and verse" but I fear that such citations would be wasted in the face of such ignorant intransigence. No doubt myself and greek will endeavour to enlist a veritable army to defeat such nonsense.

Thank you. Quod erat demonstrandum.



Attempting to quote Latin to myself shows inordinate pretension and a lack of perspective as regards our respective intellectual achievements. As mentioned elsewhere, a new broom sweeps clean.

One-word (monosyllabic) answers do not an argument make. I can see that we clearly digress over several points, but these can be addressed in due course no doubt by the administration. As I have mentioned elsewhere I see a brighter future for AMLF away from the pernicious influence of the previous regime. I personally do not want to see posts which have no intellectual input, nor do I wish to know what people are listening to. This is, as the banner heading reads, a place which is "erudite" and "decorous", filled with "freedom and delight". I think that says it all, but sometimes freedom has to come with conditions, whether delightful or not. I think you can interpret this, although it is not in Old English.
