Hi Superman!

You would still believe all the poppy-cock fed to you by the daily caller, fox news and who know what other right-wing whack conspiracy web site you have recently visited. This constant repetition of false talking points is impossible ever to quell because you can repeat them faster than anyone could ever refute them. The mistake you make is that this somehow signals that you won, when in fact, all the rest of us did is gave up on an impossible task.
You've never refuted anything Forrest.  

There were 4 Americans who died on that day and Hillary claimed it was because of a Youtube Video that they attacked the embassy.  

That was a lie and was proven to be a lie in the Capitol Hill hearings.  

She didn't care, and she flippantly stated "what difference does it make". 

The difference is she lied to Congress and the American people.

So, no I can back up pretty much everything I write.  If I can't you reserve the right to beat it down.  

One thing is certain.  You've never been able to do the same. 

Good luck with that.  wink

You know something Jim, you are simply the biggest whiner I've ever known.  Good Grief.  Grow up and act like a man.  

Get over your freaking obsession with me.  You can't even post in a different forum without complaining and whining and bringing up my name. 

No wonder your wife goes out looking for strange all the time.  LOL

What the hell kind of movies do you watch Rod???  I don't recall hearing of this Bone Tomahawk movie.  That had to be the most disgusting thing I've ever seen on film.  I've seen some horror movies in my time, but it looks as if these filmmakers have a goal of making the audience vomit.  

The last movie I watched was earlier in the week.  It was called The Man in the Moon, and it was one of the better movies I've seen in years and it was an older one, made in 1991, set in the 1950s of Louisiana.  Directed by the guy who directed one of my other favorite movies of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird.  I think the director's name is Robert Mulligan.   

I've never seen Bone Tomahawk and after that clip, I never want to see it.  

I would recommend a few earlier Genre Movies to you Rod.  Maybe you should see To Kill a Mockingbird.  Read the book as well.  Harper Lee won the Pulitzer Prize and it was her first and only Book, aside from Go Set a Watchman, which was released in 2015, more than 60 years after she wrote it. To Kill a Mockingbird is great and so is the movie.  

Plus it has juuussssst slightly less gore than Bone Tomahawk. 

As for my neighbors, I have no idea about those clowns.  The whole incident was ridiculous.  Those fools should be ashamed for going nuts like that in front of the kids.  What a disgrace they are!  

I think the DA in Littleton or wherever that occurred is going to throw the book at a few of those idiots.  At least I hope he does.  

P.S. I looked up some scenes of that movie on the internet and I do believe I saw about the first 5 minutes of that movie at my brother's house one night, but I didn't stay.  

I'll check with him tomorrow.

P.P.S.  I just watched the trailer and it made the movie look 'interesting'.  It sure didn't indicate it was like THAT scene you posted!!

These cannibalistic descendents of the natives seen in Bone Tomahawk evolved into the Klan members seen at Trump rallies and at a Colorado baseball game and are known today as "Trump voters."
Now that movie Wrong Turn, looked just plain idiotic!   LOL!  

Do you watch a lot of these Gory movies Rod??  Man, I'd recommend you start watching some comedies or even dramas.  It might do you some good!  smile

Hey Forrest Jr., 

   You really need a hobby because nothing else seems to be working for you. Your obsession with me is at the critical point.  I'd go see someone about it. 

And here's another LOL to put in your war chest 

Now go out and Keep America Great Jim and have a great day you whining leftist fool!  tongue

While there's some useful discussion on that other site, there's too much nonsense for my tastes...
I agree.  The vendor's fee is a pittance compared to what you get.  Holy smokes, worldwide exposure for the price of chump change. 

Even as a regular user (not a vendor) I've been able to make sales of used equipment to Italy, Australia, Canada, etc...  Where else could you have the audience that one enjoys here, for $15 lousy bucks??  

Most people probably spend close to $15 eating a fast food lunch during one of their work weeks. If that is the reason, it is a sorry one indeed.

I think Mel's likely correct as well about people lacking the testerone to use their own names but they're not going to have a problem if they do. I think the AM made a mistake in dropping the moderators for the forums but I'm sure there's pros and cons with that, too.
The only time I've been to the other site in awhile Rod is just to buy or sell some equipment here and there.  

I do remember though, that the purists on the refractor side, don't believe that there is ANY reason to own a reflector.  I recall those guys really taking offense sometimes if you tout the virtues of a CAT.  

There are definitely some opinionated elitists from what I remember over there.  

My C14 does just fine, thank you!  Even with the little bit of coma I get at the VERY OUTER edges of the FOV.  Usually I'm not looking at that area, I'm more in the center, plus I don't do AP, so I don't need a $3000 CCD.  My old failing eyes work well enough for me.  

The amazing thing is like you pointed out.  Guys with the fanciest car and the top of the line Astro gear, and they can't fathom spending $15 lousy bucks??
