The only thing that causes threads to become "over-heated" is when pompous, self-righteous little pip-squeaks try to tell others how to behave.
If you join in discussions in a public Forum, you have to be prepared to put up with other people's postings.
In other words:
Just Take it, Ignore it or Leave .
>The only thing that causes threads to become "over-heated" is when pompous, self-righteous little pip-squeaks try to tell others how to behave.
I don't know to whom that description was directed (?the OP), but it fits Ramon to a T.
Perhaps the description fits you too?
> Perhaps the description fits you too?
Yes it does, according to Ramon and his sycophants. However, I don't really care what these troubled people think.
Ann, I think Matthew was doing any name calling towards, Ramon in his thread. But you on the other hand Why don't you let them hash it out and don't throw fuel on the fire :-)
So why complain?!
Flame-throwers will be collected at the door.:D
OP too long. Skipped and ignored.
Rest of thread too.
Had a change of heart, and read the first few lines of the original post. Then I stopped.
Porter, if you had been sincere, instead of adding fuel to the fire, you would have contacted me offline, whited sepulcher.

I did look up a reference to "white sepulcher", and found that it is from a biblical quotation describing a rotten hypocrite. In my reading of the original post, I see nothing that a normal person would interpret in that way. Such an interpretation suggests to me a paranoid delusion, and I think that reference to a psychiatry text might be more appropriate than a biblical reference. Perhaps Ramon needs to go back on his meds. :)
" Whited sepulcher is a phrase from the Bible (Matthew 23:27) where Jesus says to the Pharisees: 'Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead [men's] bones, and of all uncleanness.' The term Whited means the same thing as "whitewashed," and the phrase describes a hypocrite, meaning the men were respectable on the outside but rotten on the inside."
I'm sorry you feel that way Ramon. My post was every bit sincere.
At least nobody can accuse me of not being publicly contrite and willing to make amends.
You on the other hand have displayed your colours. I need not say any more.
Good day to you, sir.
It's pathetic that someone has to go look up whited sepulcher. I'm not even a believer and haven't touched a bible in 60+ years. [Yep, there was a typo there, as I didn't press the d key hard enough. Typo edited now.]
I have, however, read Classics like Joseph Conrad, who used the phrase.
But, we're dealing with monkey man here. If I had had him in mind, I would have quoted something out of the DSM-V (current edition) instead.
Where do get your literature and your psychiatry from, Janes? The back of cereal boxes?

You've missed yet another chance to contact me off line rather than add fuel to the fire once more. Thanks for proving me right about your hypocrisy.
Porter, you were the one who got personal with me first. Read the thread. That sepulcher needs to be whited yet again. The rot stains are showing.
Ramon degrades the group. We are not doing ourselves, or him, any favors by
allowing him to continue to do so.
If Ramon were banned for a month, it would have two effects. First we would
see if the tone of the group imptroves with him gone. Second we could see
if Ramon's attitude improves after being let back in.
In the meantime, I'd recommend that people who are offended simply do as I
do, and block his posts. I only see his name when people complain about
him, which is still too often.

Every single individual that has opened and read this thread has done it with the tacit intention of engaging in a controversy. The title of the thread says it all.
To pretend otherwise is hypocritical and futile.
To that self-serving Faschistenmeister, this intervention has offered yet another opportunity to advertise his pathetic little web site. :/
That mangy russell terrier has no business presuming to tell the forum hosts how to do their jobs. They are mature, intelligent capable individuals who can handle anything.
Not only that, he evidences another, two-fold kind of cluelessness. On the one hand, he is dead wrong about my attitude toward the forum (interesting too that he refers to the forum as "the group"; I wouldn't want to belong to any "group" that includes him) and on the other hand he is totally unaware of the fact that the forum bouncers have indeed banned me on more than one occasion, whenever they saw fit. From the unmentionable forum section I was banned for life, even though it lasted barely six months. So what? Who cares?
Besides, it's useless to try to ban anybody, as folks like L.T. have amply demonstrated over and over again. All one has to do is log in under a different, or even just slightly altered user ID.
Now the little black-eyed terrier can see for himself how absurd his last post is.
You've got to be kidding! You're a bible thumper too? Bibel thumpers are no different and no better than Quran thumping islamitic fanatics.
[EDIT] Note added for the benefit of Dirk only, as he does not have a path to a private email address in his profile Actually, reading the bible did have a profound, beneficial on me as a youth. It freed me from the chains of a strict Catholic upbringing and made a non-believer out of me. No god would have dictated such gibberish to his "prophets" or to his people.

This quote shows how out of touch Ramon is. In an attempt to paint me as ignorant, he has potentially alienated the 95% of the forum members who are not familiar with the term "whited sepulcher"
>But, we're dealing with monkey man here. If I had had him in mind, I would have quoted something out of the DSM-V (current edition) instead.
It would be a bit difficult to quote something from DSM-V, since it is not slated for publication until 2012. This misstatement reveals that you are merely a bluffer and name-dropper, ridiculously referring to a work with which does not exist in an attempt to demonstrate your knowledge of the psychiatric literature but only exposing your shallowness.
You make it so easy for me, monkey man. :D
So, I once again failed to press a key hard enough and wrote V instead of IV, but I did specifically write "current edition" too.
The end effect was wonderful though. It served to expose your petty pedantry, once again, albeit without giving you the chance to post some of your pretty multicolored graphics though.
Maybe next time.
Go feed those monkeys now.

>the 95% of the forum members who are not familiar with the term "whited sepulcher"
Now who is "demeaning" the forum users?
Can someone please tell me how I block a user's posts from my view ... other than leaving the forums altogether, that is? Or is it just a matter of ignoring the person altogether?
I've checked the "preferences", but it's not obvious, and I've also tried clicking on Ramon's name in order to see if there is a "block this user's posts" button to no avail.
Would appreciate any assistance.
Many thanks in advance,

Ah, thanks Ramon.
Just point your newsreader to the adobeforums.com server.
And please remember to turn off your autoquotes there. Forum Hosts hate them, and so do most forum users.
