Sorry, Arteis. My Math is only marginally better than my poor grasp of this language.

BTW thanks for the advice offered to me on my action taken against Steven Smith.

I am sore enough to just need time to get over his bloodymindedness.

POLL DESCRIPTION

In this discussion, PaintsByNumbers Inactive Member bemoans:

There should be controls on trolling. Really, TMP is not suitable for actual discourse because noisemakers are allowed to flourish.
It's a repetition of a tactic that I've seen multiple times in the other threads… Not funny, just a snarky bandwidth-waste. It's part of the noise being promulgated by those with an agenda to quash discourse about the topic…
Underscoring the uselessness of TMP for reasoned discourse.

Are the TMP forums a suitable means for reasoned discourse?
