Two New Users
« on: September 03, 2017, 05:28:33 AM »
Two new users I pointed here one a hoax believer, one a good guy, both say they have an initial email saying their requests are being considered but getting no follow up.

The hoax believer is a "Photographic expert" who thinks he knows more than he does, Tom Brinckman (That's all the info I have)

The good guy is Bruce Merrill and his username is bruce92106.

Thanks for the heads up, Bryan. I don't always get the email notifications from the forum when someone joins, and Tapatalk doesn't show the number of users waiting for approval.

I've approved bruce92106, but I'm not sure which account belongs to Tom Brinckman. None of the other unapproved accounts really jump out at me as real people (I get a lot of fake spam accounts). Could you please ask him to confirm what username he used?

I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth.
I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.

Oh goody!. He will run into a few people here who ARE photographic experts, including Kiwi and myself (both of us having been professionals in the trade).

You have created a Golem, "[...] a highly mutable metaphor with seemingly limitless symbolism. [... I]t has been used to connote war, [...] isolation, [...] and despair."

"[... I]t is often used today as a metaphor for a brainless lunk or entity who [...] is hostile to his [master] under [un]controlled conditions."

But be careful: In one version of this story, the rabbi had to resort to trickery to deactivate it, whereupon it crumbled upon its creator and crushed him.
