This post from "sf" attacking a member for their profile avatar now seems pretty ironic...

Neither is a picture of you, though, is it? The current one is obviously not but the previous one was deceptive. A lie? Maybe.

A monitor that's way too bright may be a strain on the eyes. Reading everything is a strain on the brain.

You can choose to read everything. I don't and wouldn't recommend it to others.

...Anyway, you have me bang to rights. I'm not really sf at all. I'm...

I believe reincarnated is the word for which you may have been looking.

You're right, of course. [⬆︎about beating a dead horse⬆︎] I can't deny it.

Then again, that horse decided to kick me once too often. So, there is that as an excuse... poor as it may be.

But... you're right.

* Just between us... that horse wasn't really a horse. It was actually a jackass disguised as a horse.

I’d missed this excellent defrocking in the sf/ roussak saga. Somewhat amused , no, pleased to see Andrew Molitor returning to LuLa after a hiatus of close to three years. Andrew has authored the latest article ‘Breadth’ posted on the home page.

An erudite and knowledgeable poster. Andrew’s last post on the forum,
https://forum.luminous-landscape.com/index.php?topic=131726.msg1124448#msg1124448,
paved the way for a golden riposte - sadly ‘twas met with a predictable Roussak response.

Witty repartee was not Roussak’s ‘forte’ .


There's a thread with, yes, not much interest, gradually fading to the bottom of the list.

I ask a photographically salient question wildly unlikely to provoke any kind of problematic debate, and you decide to lock the thread for "lack of interest" which is something you never do, and for which there is no reason.

I think I am justified in assuming that you did this specifically because you have some kind of hard-on for me, and you couldn't bear the thought of anyone actually replying to my.

Fuck you, Roussak, you incompetent dipshit.

I don't want to be scolded by Slobodan again, but... I thought Jeremy was godawful as a moderator. Primarily because of his desire to be both participant and moderator in discussions and his condescending broadsides aimed at the participants in some threads.

Your comments on his departure summarized the inappropriate attitude well. The reincarnation that was "sf" would have been wise to heed your advice for reflection and reform. It's unfortunate, but intellect offers little protection from ego-driven reactions causing self-inflicted wounds as your cited comments suggested. History has occasionally recorded similar reactions and results scattered among those entrusted with some authority, however large or small.

Excessive pride in one's own intelligence can also lead to over confidence in the ability to deceive others. I was suspicious of sf's agenda from the start, but the identity became highly suspect with this topic started by "sf". It wasn't just starting a topic guaranteed to inflame passions and sow discord among members that made me even more suspicious regarding the agenda of "sf". It was the spelling of Roussak which caught my eye. The spelling was mangled enough that it made me wonder if it was just a clumsy attempt to allay suspicion of sf's actual nature and motivations using some ham-handed misdirection to enhance the disguise. From that point forward, my suspicion only grew.

His condescending comments were frequently aimed at the intellectual abilities of others and crafted to imply that his were of a superior nature. I confronted him at various times regarding his comments and discovered that while he could dish out criticism, he had a strong allergic reaction to receiving any. He responded with ridicule and petty attacks. His fragile ego, vindictive nature, and apparent need to make everyone aware that he was the smartest person in the room were traits not well-suited for a moderator.

That said, I don't want to continue with any additional comments myself. The "sf" charade is too sad and pathetic for me to dwell any further on it. Rather than start a new exposé thread to bring attention to this, I purposefully left it in this obscure place where it could just fade away.

A bit of self moderation would help.
Could you all just stop cluttering up the technical discussion sections of the forum and move off topic comments to the relevant section.

This thread is where another of sf's attempts to stir up discontent and feed grievances began and this is where it was brought to an end. I don't think that we'll ever hear from "sf" again, at least not under that guise.

I didn't start a new thread because I didn't want to draw additional attention to this rather sad and embarrassing affair. The embarrassment caused in this little spot where it happened was sufficient.

Sorry we messed up your lawn mister. We were just trying to get our ball back. We'll get off of it now.
