    In plain terms, pertinent information is being shared backchannel.

    I can tell you for a fact that the OP is getting a start on information regarding the repair person in question and his pen, and I can also tell you that a number of us know exactly who he is dealing with and know a history of this. Not all dialog exists strictly in the thread, but can occur in other ways.

    Don't assume, please. Be open to the possibility that we are actually helping someone.
    Ironically, you chose to post. Why? And, you're giving me lessons on making assumption? Ha!!

    Chuck, your last two posts are rather obscure.

    Indeed, this thread is way over my head at this point.

    Don't worry, Fred. It's a "back channel" thing.

    No, you're making it a public forum thing. Just keep it back channel.

    No, based on my experience here, I will leave it as is, Fred.

    I reached out to the OP through PMs, so as to take any literal information regarding the matter off of a public forum. I am continuing to assist through private channels, along with colleagues. The point of this is to - hopefully - get the pen back to the owner (OP). It would be grand if you could just leave it for now, until and unless the OP has something to report back, or you have something relevant to help the guy out.

    and that when Truth and Error have fair Play, the former is always an overmatch for the latter."

    Sounds kind of self-serving.

    A variation that comes to mind is “you don’t really understand something unless you can explain it to a child in a way they understand.”

    The most permanent way to learn something is to have it bite you in the ass. That's a lesson I've learned the hard way.

    That’s the Army way to learn - through pain.
