    Still waiting to see where you called out Ramon for putting his own copyright notice on a photo taken by, owned by, and copyrighted by someone else.

    I'm confused. I thought this thread was going to be a well-documented, serious inquiry into whether or not W. A. Sheaffer and Alley Oop lived contemporaneously? Can we please get back on topic? And hey -- how cool are those dinosaurs!

    I can confirm, from first hand experience, that those dinosaurs are cool.

    Hi to every one.

    Oops, so many newbies.

    It’s not my intention to bumps hypocritically this empty thread, once and again, but it happens.

    I am innocent on this.

    Sometimes a pen is just a pen”. Paraphrase based on something that someone said that Dr. Freud once said.

    Just as Dante Alighieri once pointed out, I am already far, far away, from the middle of my life.

    What's your opinion of Ramon's applying his own copyright label to a photograph that was taken by, copyrighted by, and is owned by someone else?

    Don't be evasive.

    Hi there.

    Any deliberation that seeks some agree should be based on respect among the participants and also a respect for the rules of a legitimate debate.

    Constantly appealing to argumentative fallacies forces to suspect ignorance or ill will.

    Now is the Tu quoque argument repetitively and boring full expressed.

    How important is who I am, think or have done, against the fact that someone was criticized for using stolen images from the internet and the contradiction that in a satirical thread against that person, it begins with an image from a well-known contemporary artist, not identified and additionally altered?

    Furthermore that the questioned threads have been deleted and the sarcastic sense of humor in this mess is increasingly unintelligible.

    When enough is enough?

    Best regards.

    For those whose ego requires it, I want to formally declare that my fountain pen is no bigger or nicer than none.

    "PS. I live in Chile, so I am not spaniard or catalan and neither my name is Ramon."

    This is what I really do not get.

    Also the name of above inhabitants should be capitalized. not showing them any respect.

    I agree. Like a dog with a bone. I'm even starting to wonder if he's Ramon, risen again from the ashes....

    He says he's not, which is maybe good reason to believe that he is.

    Given the quality of choices she's already made, I would guess that'd be a yes.
