Oops! I blame old age ...
Not old age, Dave. Just think of Bertie Russell or Noam Chomsky. It's pure senility...
...like when Windows crashes on me then I restart & Windows hits me with a r o u n d of goddamnmuthrforking u p d a t e s, so I totally forget whatever it was I was doing when the disaster struck.
My posting here was a drive-by. I don't think I could face going around in circles any more, covering the same ground, coping with the obnoxious, getting nowhere because there is no sign or hope of co-operation or development. I can't see a nexus of experience coming together to pass on an evolving tradition of an alternative scholarly approach to biblical studies. No fostering of skills for that purpose.

: I do note a few interesting new voices here.
I merely came looking for some data I may have posted here that I need, but didn't find.
Hello, my name's spin. I'm an ex-forum junkie. Beside Reddit I haven't touched a forum in several years.
It's a bit like dumpster diving really, you can't do that all day or even every day of the week.
You can spend weeks out here bashing one single person into the proper (hehe) direction - only to find him having turned again completely after you turned your back - or you can use the forum for cherry-picking (1-2 cherries in every rim-filled basket just about) and publish findings based on that
I'm out here since 3 years now, just about. It's a great forum to quickly get up to speed with all the intricacies of "things Geewsus" but it quickly gets old exactly because of the fact that most people out here are exactly that - every benefit usually has its own concern which is intimately related to the benefit itself.
You either solidify here because your own Geewsus-path is highly solidified yourself, or you get on with your life. So it's good to see you go as I come and go often msyelf
and I can just search other people's posts, that's what I use the forum for mostly these days. Rare few sane people like Dave always offering good material, it's all worth it
I'm an IT-guy in regular life, and yes, when Windows gets quirky that usually (if not always) is because it's already entered some twilight zone of an impending Update. I try to advance Updates so I can avoid that as at that point often one Update leads to another, yes.
"IT-guy" is a broad definition by the way
