it always amuses me the kind of reaction that some people give you in response to the fact that you might carry a knife at all, let alone have one on you right now, even people how carry knives themselves are shocked to see a knife they might not be familiar with. a while back i got a 1955 vintage british army knife, its got a 2.5inch sheepsfoot and a hook shaped can opener, and one of the blokes at work says"thats a nasty looking knife" after he was talking about carring a large opinel! my girlfriend bought me a SAK(huntsman) for a pressie the other day so i carry that all the time now, at least its not only leagle, but most people seem ok with them as well.

Nothing like having a line free face after a hard day of fighting off mountain lions and bears.

Gee wilikers, I never knew so much vanity existed in the out back.

Just a warning not to click on these links. It's an ad for face cream. I thought I would save everybody some time until his post is (hopefully) deleted.

It would bother me less, but this sleaze was in a response to MY post...

Hate to see it here.

Presumed_Lost:

In advertising, I have heard it said that the messages you remember most often and the longest are the ones you really love, and the ones you really hate.

If his message bothers you too much, he will have succeeded. Laugh it off and let Chris & Doug decide what to do with his message and his membership.

It is an obvious commercial ploy, and unless we hear otherwise, the ploy was not pre-approved. He probably read about how busy Doug & Chris are these days and took advantage of the situation.

And this too shall pass.

I hear ya... didn't succeed that way, I couldn't name the company if I had to, and of course I would never buy something marketed that way... but I doubt that he cares. He's undoubtedly getting a few cents for every page "visit".

Sooo... we're being exploited, and someone who's paying for the web page "advertising" is being cheated as well, which is the real point of what he's done.

It's not possible to lock anyone out of the forums without somehow compromising their anonymity (else they just come back under another ID). That anonymity here is something I take advantage of and value, and hope that I have not abused in these several years... but if it is abused by others, then those managaging the forums will have no choice- I will lose it, and that means that "Presumed Lost" will be no more.

So, yeah, I probably have no choice but to shrug it off.. but I do really hate to see it here.

That is one of my favorite books too.
That Heinlein invented the water bed is rather well known.
The fact that he invented the 'concept' of the hydration system(camelback, etc...) is not well known at all.
I think that is because it was not implimented until MANY years after this book was published.
