First of all, with everything going on with CHFB/Yuku, ap[ologies for not realizing threads needed to be combined. Catching up.
Also, I almost always take the side of someone being teased, mocked or belittled, so there's that.
All that said, I've deleted the mysterious '1' thread, and urge everyone to chill out and respect one another. Dr. Acula is too important a member, and one of long-standing grace and knowledge, to risk losing at the CHFB.
So let's please move on. If two threads need to be merged, let me know.
Thanks. (And if you haven't, check out the KONG documentary here at the CHFB this weekend. Much better trhan squabbling).

We used to have a member, now long departed from our CHFB realm, who would employ this technique. To use some of the previous posts as examples, he would do something like this.
Kcor, I'm glad you "grasp" that.
Taraco, I'm sorry you're "exhausted."
Prof. Liebstraum, I'm "sorry" about Dr. Acula, too.
Once, he responded to a post by saying, "You can throw all the 'facts' at me you want..." which meant he doubted the facts, which actually were incontrovertible facts.
Even when not using quotation marks as a refutation they always lent his posts an air of insincerity and sarcasm.
So I know what you mean, Elisabeth.
