Noel, I totally agree with your suggestion that people back up their
contentions with evidence, but I also might suggest that it might be
absolutely esssential that there be a concerted editorial effort to
"mix it up". Let’s keep this forum lively, with open argument and
uninhibited exchange of opinion and ideas. This medium will die if it
is not entertaining ! Entertainment always suggests novel opinion
and, indeed, sometimes totatlly wacko ideas.Indeed, creativity almost
always suggests deviation. The end consideration is that, rather than
rehashing such dull and mundane considerations as how to save money
on buffing wheels,we consider the use of carborundum ( aka.
moissanite ) as a gemstone !
