I appreciate your frustration, since Girma seems immune to logic, but the best way to deal with that is to ignore him. That's the time-honoured practice.

Girma: we've given your theories a very good run for their money, but you aren't convincing anyone. Your only recourse, as others have suggested, is to try to get them published -- but you will only run into the same objections you've encountered here.

The personal reputation scores are hard to replicate, as is the "reply by email" feature (which I find really useful, and Bryan & I can moderate by email as well), but most of the other stuff can be done by plug ins. I'll ponder, but I might revert to the old system with an extra plug-in that allows comment voting. We'd end up with a system more or less the same as Frogblog, if you want to take a look.

I agree, Girma. Tom, please keep it polite. Speculation as to Girma\'s mental state is hardly that.

If we revert to the native Wordpress system, yes, that's possible. If comments are "nested" though (as they are now), those numbers are liable to change... If they're not nested, you have to scroll up and down the page to follow a conversation. Again, let me know what you prefer, and if I revert I'll take that into account.

Yes, I've noticed the same thing. Sometimes on a slow connection -- and my broadband link is often flakey -- the comments don't load at all. I'll change back, if that's what people want. Means a bit more work for me, but I suppose I can live with that... Opinions please...

"Guest" reminds me a great deal of comments made here by John McLean (the one from McLean, de Freitas & Carter) earlier this year. Comes from teh same neck of the woods in Australia, anyway...

Neither. They're seedling Quercus ilex.

Indeed they may, but you may be surprised by the names on the indictment.

He's in Australia, it seems. Not a regular, otherwise he might know better than turning up here waving so many long-debunked arguments.

If you could deliver the trees. I'm waiting on 50 at the moment...
