Though, I'm puzzled why is that addressed to me, when in fact proves my point that Cleveland has second-thoughts to accept.
To refute your identification of H3O (hydronium) with heavy water (D2O).

I am embarrassed for the stupidity of this guy.
Yes, I have been called stupid before. ;D

The connection is the injury of Cleveland's haughtiness.

Poor kid.

To whom are you referring? I assure you, if you are referring to me, then yes, I am poor (or about to be poor); and a child only in the spiritual sense, albeit not in the physical or mental one.

You could have checked the subject matter at least at wikipedia, and not in dictionaries. If they lectured chemistry to you from dictionaries, you might try to base your claim on fraud.

If they lectured chemistry to me at a nationally-recognized and acclaimed engineering school from a dictionary, I'd have more to base my claim on than fraud.  Sadly you are mistaken.  I just don't feel (mental state: psychology) the burning (combustion: both chemistry and physics) need (again, psychology) to drag out (motion: physics) my dusty books (ooo: physics and biology) to prove my point; call it the laziness of inertia (physics).

You know, for chemistry, ice and water are the same. They have the same formula = H20. They have the same chemical properties. It's written even in the dictionaries you quoted, but one needs to know to read it.

For chemistry, ice and water are both H2O generally speaking, but will interact differently with compounds depending on the conditions of the H2O.

Has GiC already became a new "Old Calendarist whose jurisdiction is more conservative even than ROCOR?"

Your wit, while charming, seems to have not generated any new humor.  You may want to expand your repertoire.

Your pose of self-confidence shows the tendency of crumbling when you are so alone, while the opponent seems growing huge, so you become so welcome for an outside support that you suddenly proclaim authoritative?

I didn't know you could tell my "pose" over the internet... But I will engage the point regardless.  1. I am self-confident, period.  Ask anyone who knows me from offline.  2. It doesn't crumble, whether I'm in the majority, minority, right, wrong, etc.  3. You don't seem huge - heck, the only thing that seems huge is the fact that you went an entire post to me without butchering the English language.  4. I don't need outside support, but intelligent discussion usually requires it, unless you want to keep dancing in circles around your flawed presumptions and ineffective presentation.

To avoid conflict of interest, because of the warning I gave for the ad hominem attack on PetertheAleut, I am going to cease my participation on this thread.  If anyone would like me to respond to a comment, please engage me via PM.

The above really does not need any comment.

Poor kid, they did cheat you.

I see.

In various forms of supportive "Old Calendarists whose jurisdiction is more conservative even than ROCOR", you picked one whose diagnose is apt to be interpreted as an attack.

On a second thought, you two are a nice pair.

You are being placed on post moderation for offensive and innapropriate posting, specifically, swearing, sexual references, ad hominems, and unprovoked false and offensive insinuations against posters.

If you wish to dispute this moderation, please pm Fr. Chris.

Would this be considered an ad hominem?
Should you perhaps give yourself a warning?

Don't bother yourself, bro.
