It's ok pal. I know that you don't answer all questions posed of you and will not provide true sources when asked. I read yours, responded to it, asked more questions and you tried to (unsuccessfully) ignore my questions and responses by accusing me of straw man arguments and fudging something. Many thanks to you for not continuing this discussion and putting me through anymore of your nonsense.

You sure showed me with such strong language.
Sorry that is too difficult a concept to grasp.
What it means is that date problems appear to be due to different dates being assigned to the same day by different groups. That is what happens when a civilization collapses and different groups head in different directions.
Discrepancies in long count dates from the Classic period now suggest to archaeologists that the long count calendar was not standardized across all of the Mayan cities.
Well the dates have come and gone, no boom, no peep, nothing really earth shattering, save that there is very few twinkies left due to the shut down of the factory and the bankrupcy of the company. Worst Apocolypse ever.

YAY!! Doom on!! I love it. If/when Sunday doesn't happen, what will be the next date associated with the Mayans?
...mean that they know it for fact? They will "discover" something else I am sure, that will change what they "know" now. Oh right. You're the guy that argued with me that Scientists didn't exist before modern history. Nevermind pal. I would argue with you, but I don't want to be confused for you. I wonder how many people will get that?
"When I first started going, nobody knew what I was talking about, nobody had ever heard of it," Sitler said. "That's because that calendar[long count] fell into disuse a thousand years ago."
