Sheer poetry G-man.

BTW I could not figure out how to cut/paste your quote from one thread and have it show up here with credit to you. Help.

Running along the bottom of each post, there are several options "like" "edit" "reply" and then there is a little square -->that is the "quote" option. Click it and then the next post you make anywhere will contain that entire post. Then just cut out the parts you don't need. Thumbsup

Do it like this:

{quote='Girlyman'}
text
{/quote}

Replace "{}" with "[]"

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
