But you are already folding and making my case, which is OK. Cause sometimes being right is better than being a little more financially solvent.
You're just sore that you didn't get what you wanted way back when. Sorry, I stand by what I write, and I'm certainly not stooping to silly games to satisfy your strange whims and fancies.
No to you your: no one ever listens to me, I offer a counter example. There was a sensitive moment and I am not complaining that I didn't get what I wanted but rather that you didn't offer what you said you would. Then year(s) later you opine quite vaguely and broadly and inaccurately (as you have already admitted) later on the matter.
Your favorite whipping boy, Bob, has nothing to do with the person who made the image you equated to his work. Not in intent, which I normally don't care about, but a reverse image search by certain people could cause harm to them by your brazen comparison.
You could have offered a more nuanced contribution to the number of opinions I sought about the "Prisoner Jesus" image which could have helped me form a more thorough and sensitive argument against its use. I had my gut reactions at the time and turned directly to you for technical reasons to suggest it not being used as an icon. Others offered their opinions based on their own abilities. Your own mastery of the history of the iconographic tradition was what I was hoping to be able to benefit from.
Again think what you want, but I suggest in the future you follow up on your agreements made in private rather than glibly making comments which could be hurtful in the future to specific persons who don't come here and open themselves up to the slings and arrows of oc.net.
Perhaps Bob deserves your ire, the person responsible for the other image doesn't nor his well meaning supporters even if it only via extension by comparison to of the creator of that image to Bob. That I do know. Hence my rare occasion of asking about 20 oc.net members via PM something rather creating a thread. (That was when I realized there a was a limit to the amount of persons you could PM at once.)
Oh well. I know this doesn't fit whatever characterizations you have made about me and my esteem of your expertise, but I guess when you ignore the obvious counterfactuals you can enjoy the idol you have created in my image.
