How can you be thorough and not post an image to back up your claim?
Why do we need to talk about why Rafe's image in not valid?
Why do we need to talk about the theory of jpeg compression?
Why not simply post an image that shows what you believe to be true?

That's what you should be answering because pretending to be all
reasonable all of a sudden is not fooling anyone.
And I can see why. Sure, we all may have lashed out at one time or
another but reasonable people realize it, apologize and move on.
They don't go on for weeks, in essence, having a flame war with
themselves. No wonder people are turned off and question credibility
of such protracted outbursts.

The only thing I wonder is how he managed to stay so cool after weeks
of provocations. I'm telling ya man, I sure couldn't! I guess that
makes me an idiot too.
Anyway, and for the last time. Let's burry this puppy, OK?

Come on Don. I'm on your side man, but let's all just drop it! All
