So, no thoughts or opinions? Just a basic headline with no links to sources or anything?


Hmm, Well.... not much I can say, since there is nothing to the thread....

With all due respect you really should have waited until you have the links and sources and then included an opinion of your own. Thoughts etc....

I really can't say much to the thread.... so... my reply is as follows.


OK, thanks for sharing.........

Again, maybe you should have waited until there were links?

At the very least it is expected of members to include thoughts and opinions and avoid minimalistic threads.

So.... until you at LEAST have an opinion or thought in the issue you posted about... There is not much anyone can say. I am sure you understand.

Forgive an old veteran of the site. I just prefer going by the rules.


Peace and love.

Thanks, Matrix. For NOT waiting!!

Gimme is raining on you for being First With The Facts.

Imagine the ancient Greek headline: ALEXANDRIA LIBRARY ON FIRE.

Let's hope they don't burn all the geometry books this time.


(Gimme-Some-Truth is a REALLY good guy--- fire just brings out the
in all of us. Our prayers are with the folks and the books in this Grand Old Library. I hope it didn't burn the last copy of Jefferson's UFO Sighting figures !!!!)

No thoughts on a possible fire in the Library Of Congress?

No concerns about the info that could be lost? The people that might be in danger? Nothing?

Fair enough. Well, I do beg your pardon and hope I do not come across as rude. That most certainly is not my intention.

Well, in that case. I will come back when you have added more info to the thread.


Peace and love.

Gimme would-be mod is raining on you for being First With The Facts. I want my ignore button back.

Imagine the ancient Greek headline: ALEXANDRIA LIBRARY ON FIRE.

Former mod actually


And no, not raining on anyone. Forgive me, I just was hoping to hear more. Just as excited as you to hear more. Which is why I was pressing for info. I am sure you understand.

But I do apologize to you for coming across as abrasive. That is not my intention. Maybe I am just in a bad mood today. Forgive me.
