Rob,

 Dean has backed off and CSI Miami is broadcast history.

 Time to let it go.

Eric, Rob, Jeremy, perhaps you missed my explanation that my post was a parody, and the more you criticize that post in the manner you have the more effectively you make my point?

 
For those who may not understand what’s going on here, my post was a parody of a nearly identical post made by Stamper here:  http://www.luminous-landscape.com/forum/index.php?topic=75336.0  Look for Reply #17.  I just copied his post, typo and all, and then changed it so that it was directed at different “alter egos”.  

If you were already aware that my post was a parody, or it doesn’t matter with respect to your recent comments, please just ignore this post.

... we write quite differently regarding grammar, construction as well as cadence and flow... we are similar in that we all use English.

Indeed. Only in my dreams one would confuse my writing with Rob's.

Which one?

For a brief, quickly quenched moment of madness I'd imagined you'd been thinking dominatrix before you typed, but I was obviously just having a hot flush. Thinking of which, the restaurant is back down to normal prices today after Sunday excesses, so as I have had enough of my own cooking over the weekend, I'd better rush off and have a shower, something I dread here in winter: everything is so damned damp and cold, even when the electric heating's on.  I should have faced it earlier, but we had a power cut this morning and I didn't dare get caught covered in soap with no way to get rid of it. The water comes courtesy of an electric pump. Fun in the sun, right.

A hot flush?  I have heard about heated toilet seats, but never a hot flush.  Talk about lifestyles of the rich and famous     Grin

Just ignore these guys, Rob. They won't post their ages but it sounds as if they're too old to have a hot flush.

Age is a state of mind.  My wife says I still act like a 12 year old.

Just as long as she's not a twelve-year-old (beware the Ides of Jerry Lee) you have nothing to fear. The perfect age, in my estimation, was the mid-forties. I speak of my age, not of the times in which we lived (some of us), because we were both young enough to enjoy everything that was going, had the health and stamina to eat it, drink it, probably buy it and go sail in it. Yes!

Today, few of those options remain, but at least at the time the Internet, for me, didn't; had it existed, I may well have wasted many of those other, real opportunities in exchange for an uncomfortable typìst's chair on a stick. Close shave, that!

You can always settle for a hot bidet.

A couple of Habanero peppers will achieve the same result at a much lower cost.  Cheesy

Roger (the gentleman who started this thread):

I want you to know that I admire the way you responded to the “alter ego” smear campaign waged against you.  http://www.luminous-landscape.com/forum/index.php?topic=75336.0

Faced with a despicable personal attack by a clique of immature bullies, you responded gracefully, treating your bullies with respect that they surely didn’t deserve.  Your response is especially striking in comparison to the responses made by some of those bullies to my parody. 

Roger, you’ve demonstrated what it means to be a man of honesty and integrity.  You may have been bullied and smeared by many posters in these threads, but I want you to know that at least one person recognizes and appreciates your sound character.  Thank you for your efforts and demonstration of grace under fire.

You mean like calling me "child-like," "out of control," and telling me to "get a grip?" All that while lecturing and berating not for what concerns him directly, but on behalf of another poster? So much for his "let's discuss photography, not another poster."
