    Lets ponder this.
    Tell you what. If you are trying to do a "guess who", give up. I am not posing under an assumed name or associated with anyone else who may have posted something you object to on the forum. I have no doubt one of the MANY mods-authors has the ability to check my IP address and has probably already done so. Nice try, though. icon7.png
    Pic fights??????? Put em' up! Them's fightin' words. Oh brother rolleyes5.gif
    If there's a "chip" on my shoulder, it's probably a chocolate chip. I like them.
    Unfounded? Did you not SEE the STG44 stuff?

    Mr. Farb...I give up. How does pics of rifles "fix this thread".icon5.png
    Should I print them out and paste them over the STG pages? icon7.png

    Seeing as you do not want to take Farb's peace offering... which is no surprise, as it was obvious by page two you were not here for constructive criticism... we might as well continue along this path as it beats talking about "real problems".

    Indeed they are different and just as you have been allowed to express your perspective freely, I can offer a different opinion to why yours are baseless and wrong. Or is it your expectation that only you can offer a different "taste" to what is acceptable?

    I am fully aware that other books often get critical reviews, often even more crudely and arrogantly expressed than you have shared with us today, however for that criticism to have merit it should be argued intelligently, - your argument is based simply on a preference in how the rifles are approached, one very few collectors would appreciate. You seem to think that authors should only base a study on observed rifles, not the company, how they were made or the influence other products had on the primary topic (the rifles), as though they were made in a vacuum and there were no outside influences... the wartime conditions had considerable influence on how they were made, even beyond the company the economy and war situation had a profound impact of how the rifles were made.

    I would suggest you not get your little heart set on this subject not being broadened further in newer books, if anything the events of 1939-1944 will demand a broader explanation to the variations seen. You cannot separate them unless you are planning on making a simple booklet or "gun show" guidebook.

    And BTW...opinions can neither be right or wrong. As opinions, they are not capable of being judged. They are personal reactions.
    So what part of the book are you responsible for? Hopefully not the part where "effected" is misused. That's kind of a high school error.
    And please clarify...how do a few random pictures equate with a peace offering????

    It's pretty clear you are trolling now. Please stop posting on our forum and remove yourself. I'm asking you nicely so as to save you the embarrassment of doing it myself. You obviously just want to antagonize everyone, seems your original posting was meant just for that.

    We are a family here, we all get along and help each other. Some folks just can't do that and I can appreciate that. This forum is obviously not up to your level.

    I leave you with my two favorite quotes. "Life is too short to suffer fools." and "You can't save everybody."

    Forget about unrelated content, the first and last pages are blank. What's up with that?

    Is that an opinion or a fact?

    As for affect vs. effect, if you are asking do I confuse verbs with nouns, yes sometimes. As for the peace offering, it was an "opinion" of Mikes motive, it could have been wrong, but I have known him for awhile now and he typically isn't confrontational.

Now, is there a thread where I can point out word useage errors in this book? Seems like the spell checker worked okay, but the proof reader must have been eating tater tots while on the job...

    Page 277. Second sentence on that page. The word is "effected". It should be "affected". Here's the difference in meaning:

    Agreed. Never said you didn't have a write http://www.diffen.com/difference/Right_vs_Write to voice them. I am the one that they are attempting to squelch. The hero worship is not a knock on those who worked on the book. I have no doubt great effort was put into it. What I complained about was STRICTLY my opinion. The hero-worshipping comment was aimed at the masses who treat the authors with some kind of special treatment above and beyond what is normal. On second thought, it appears it's not really the "masses" that are after me, but mainly the mods. I am still wondering about so many mods on a relatively small and inactive forum. Are you guys anticipating an invasion from the M1 Garand forum or what?
    Hmmmm, what's that old saying about glass houses and stones?

    respectfully,
    Denny Gaither
    (One of the proof reader/spell checkers)

    p.s. I love tater tots....
