I've actually come to the conclusion that Jim is a clever troller. And that
we should move on. There's enough good/amusing/informative stuff here.
Oh, and I think the phrase you were looking for was
"curmudgeonous ***." (you're welcome, Sheila.) However, it
is the oft maligned and unofficial policy of rec eq that people
should be able to say whatever they want, so if somebody
actually wants to keep doing the thing, they should be able
to. I just don't think anybody wants to anymore, so that
should be enough.
Well, I've been a day ahead--then I end up a year behind...
