Self praise is no recommendation

You really are losing the plot Mike. I didn't write that preface,
this quote has nothing to do with us, other than that Hyams and his
first wife once owned this house and I mentioned neither of those facts
in my original post. You're the one who has alerted others to that! I
merely quoted something from an 'old time' plantsman and gardener which
is relevant to all gardeners.

Now read it again. Are YOU and your fellow gardeners amongst the first
people in the preface?

NO, you are putting yourself amongst the second and polishing your halos.

I suspect that you are dysfunctional in terms of your capacity to deal
with real life. No 'normal' person would read that piece and see it as
an individual introducing a hagiography for members of urg! I do
assure you that when Hyams wrote that, he did not have members of a
newsgroup in mind.

Very clever of you to twist it to that meaning.

Your original posting would have been better coming from a 'non gardening
Bricklayer' singing the praises of gardeners 'looking after the world'
rather than your 'self praising look how good we are' one.

Oh my goodness - I stopped reading and contributing to UK.Sci.Weather
because of this sort of 'troll-like behaviour'.

Sacha: I feel for you... my only recommendation is to ignore completely
follow-ups of this nature. You cannot hope to get your reasonably put
points acknowledged and neither do you have the time, inclination or
type of personality needed to respond to every troll-like slant and
sleight response.

I rarely reply to this pest, actually. But his behaviour lately is
starting to border on harassment so will have to be dealt with
accordingly.

I think I know which pest.
KF him and think nothing else of it.
