If you are going to state things about me as if they were some sort of fact, it might show you were not afraid of a reply if you did not lock the thread.
The problem I see with your attitude, Gazomg, is the undercurrent of perceived superiority in your position and intellect, which (when we consider some of the participants on these fora) is laughable to the point of hysteria. For example, in this very conversation: Michael is vastly educated on the subject, and even he wouldn't consider himself more learned on theology in general and Catholicism in particular than I am. We are both (and I'll speak for him here, knowing that he'll correct me if I'm mistaken) willing to listen for reasoned discourse, and also perfectly content to dismiss cheek and mean-spiritedness summarily.
If you wish to be treated as an equal, Gazomg, earn it. Deal respectfully with those around you, as you have not done since your debut here, and perhaps we'll start to consider letting you sit in while the adults are conversing. Until then, it's the kids' table for you, and rightly so.
You don't seem to get it: Once you start using phrases like "Invisible Man" (that are employed solely to lampoon and provoke), you have lost before you've even begun, because you've shown yourself incapable of respecting opinions not your own, no matter your protestations to the contrary.
First off, my opinion is as equal as any one elses, no better, no worse, I never claimed to be superior, that is your perception.
You moan about

Where did all this start? I need a point of reference, and
I can't seem to locate it.
As for it being dead in here lately.....
Between some free photo hosting sites blocking the old art, and
losing most of our artists, it isn't what it used to be.
Maybe we can find some free photo host sites that are still free?
I'll do my best to try again at photo manipulation.

You claim I posted what you quoted. I didn't post that. It was Joe's post.
Please see: viewtopic.php?p=181673#p181673
Notice the "JM1776" nametag on the post?
Now that we all know I didn't post what you were commenting on, and given you're commenting on a thread which was locked, I'm going to lock this thread as well.
If you have something to say to Joe about his post, do so by PM. If you have anything to say about this thread and it being locked, contact me by PM.
Don't start another thread.
