I’m still settling in and I do things differently from Anthony, so to give you all the best experience, I need you to work with me.

If any you want to tell me anything that needs attention or action, use the feedback or submit a story forms.  I do not read all, or even most comments. The volunteer moderators do an excellent job and I put my squirrel-like snippets of attention elsewhere.

If you see someone using comments to get ahold of me, reply to them and tell them to use the feedback form.  Thank you.

I will read all the feedback and story submissions.  That is how I hear from you.  That is how you get my attention.

There is currently a backlog of submissions and feedback.  I’m going to go back and deal with everything from 11/9/18 forward.

If you have something that was ignored before that date, send it again.  Of course that’s no guarantee you’ll get what you want, but at least you know I will see it.

I know I can be brusque.  I can also be funny.  I can even be kind.  Who knows what the wheel will bring on the next spin?

Most of all, I hope it will be entertaining. ~ctm

It’s all good as long as you don’t set the place on fire. Thanks for your efforts.

Bless you for coming to Anthony’s aid. While he is battling fires in his way, you help keep alive the fire of skepticism.

It is good that Anthony can have the time to do what he needs to do and I encourage as many as possible to hit the donate button to help where we can.

“tell them to use the feedback form.”

I assume that means the Tips and Notes tab (?).

A new interesting report is published. It is Blair D. Macdonald’s “Quantum Mechanics and Raman Spectroscopy Refute Greenhouse Theory”. Discussion and comments could be interesting.

“For the same reasons as the absurd topics listed above, references to the “Slaying the Sky Dragon” Book and subsequent group “Principia Scientific” which have the misguided idea that the greenhouse effect doesn’t exist, and have elevated that idea into active zealotry, WUWT is a “Slayer Free Zone”. There are other blogs which will discuss this topic, take that commentary there.”

I was in Yosemite NP and environs while the Ferguson-Yosemite fire was still smoldering. The NP had hundreds of slash piles waiting cool moist conditions to burn, sooner than later.

Sooner than later here too.

Posted by EternalOptimist on the previous topic:-
“In ancient Greece the Spartans were aka Lacadaemonians. Their language was tailored for close order infantry combat.
terse to the point of rudeness
this is were the description ‘Laconic’ comes from”

Laconic works for me.

The finest epitaph ever written was by Simonides of Ceos on the Three Hundred Spartans.
Herodotus tells us it was on the Cenotaph at Thermopylae:

ὦ ξεῖν’, ἀγγέλλειν Λακεδαιμονίοις ὅτι τῇδε
κείμεθα τοῖς κείνων ῥήμασι πειθόμενοι.

“Go, tell the Spartans, stranger passing by
That here, obedient to their laws, we lie.”

It’s not exactly Laconic, but it says far more than the words alone denote.

Did you just make a Wheel of Time reference? Or was it an inadvertent moment of geekery?

Exactly where does one find this feedback form?
