“ I put a lot of work in to help get this platform up and running.”
And we put a lot into posting links to your work to get it out. If this is the hill that you have chosen to surrender on, that is up to you. But it is foolish to expect preferential treatment just because you do good research.
The rules were clearly posted and it was posted for good reason. All are expected to prove our work. Many people in the group you are defending post a bunch of crap.
Why encourage that here?
With egos in play, across many diverse opinions... the egos hit heads. While wisdom and agreed-to and well-articulated parameters on this specific forum were blown to the winds? Parameters are understood by collaborators, but chafed at by anyone else who dives in from a side point to inject a point, using the assembled.
Rex, I love you and have followed you for years. This very obvious kick-back at the Quod community was not "deep". It was frankly superficial. Discussing the old shape of letters, turning the Q upside down to discuss the shape. This was the hill you derisively chose. Dear God, I have never in all your on-point, factual clear posts heard you dissolve to that crap. This is not about Saul. ...
I agree. REX, I loved reading your posts. But I don't understand why you have presented the Q thing when you knew the admins would hate it. Other people have been booted out for it, and you knew that. I hope you can apologize to Saul and come back. It takes a strong person to apologize and not be caught up in ego.
@RonOgletree seen it before as well....to the point of pattern. And some time later, on an arbitrary platform said "Rex is back!"
I have to wonder what else is going on ... personal level. None of this feels "right."
Rex, I hope you're okay. Lots of us are carrying some heavy burdens right now.
We'll all get through this together.
When I think about it, has Rex ever bashed Q? Called it stupidity? Agree with anyone who disagrees?
Maybe this isn't so far fetched, but we just assumed he didn't believe in it because he wasn't peddling it to us.
Just a thought.
Ugh... And people wonder why you have to run a tight ship. They have no idea of the attacks that come with being at the top of any organization.
And the worst betrayals come from the inner circles.
I too do not understand this. A man who has built a reputation for excellently separating the wheat of truth from the chaff of lies and misdirection, painstakingly, over years, suddenly starts spouting about numbers and the shape of letters and the frigging Golden Ratio, that pet of pseudoscientists and crackpots for so many years? Why? What happened?
These so-called scientists of today are largely groups of jackasses that will just say whatever they are told so there departments will be funded excessively.
Look at the entire gender movement. Seriously? We need anybody to explain to us that there are men and women and nothing else? But as long as dump trucks of money are being piled in their lawns.......
Something like this happened once way back at Twit when, I believe, he was Imperator Rex I.
Just kind of had a meltdown, alluding to things invisible to most followers, known to others perhaps. Then, poof! closed up shop.
I was sad when he left, as I am now, and happy when he reincarnated.
Btw, I was always able to, find, him, by, his, unusual, placement, of, commas. I imagine it reflected his thought pattern or speech.
This last bit doesn’t sound like him at all. I once thought perhaps 2 people were Rex.
@wziminer I agree with you Wzi. Very strange, but we are seeing a LOT of very strange behavior lately. I hope you are doing well. Huge love! ❤️
@oystergirl I'm doing well, thanks. Hope you are holding up in all this crazy.
@wziminer You know the drill. Keep on keeping on! Much love and stay healthy! :)
This reminds me of every church split I've had the unfortunate opportunity to watch.
Everyone talks about LOVE, UNITY and coming together in COMMON FELLOWSHIP, But, no two people believe exactly the same so basic tenants are set for the betterment of the community.
Enter the "Sowers of Discord" with the root of Pride.
NO GOOD EVER COMES OF IT.
The best thing to do is rip the band-aid off quickly and let's get on with defeating the left.
This crap brings them so much joy.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
