Angel Sculptor, you posted a comment in the forum's suggestion box
that I have failed to understand the meaning of even though I mentally
examined it for hours. Your post was simply:
I'm not sure whether an actual authority here would understand what you mean;
perhaps they would, perhaps they wouldn't. All I really know is that this may be
an opportunity for me to learn something.
For the sake of an attempt to understand the meaning of the comment, I've
imagined myself in the position of an Angel in authority here. So the premise
is that I'm an authority here, which of course I am not, but am just a regular
member. I just saw the humor in my own assertion that I'm a "regular member."
The truth is I couldn't be a regular member if my life depended on it.
An "irregular" member I may be; but the whole truth is I'm neither regular nor
irregular. I digress, but I feel it's important not to take oneself too seriously.
Angel Sculptor, I'm sure I'm not going to understand "even handed moderation"
without your explanation of its meaning.
So could you please tell me exactly what you mean by your three words?
I sense that you are implying something by them that perhaps you could state clearly.
I look forward to your response, and thank you in advance for it.

You made a claim in my thread, 'Love Mathematics' and have so far
failed to substantiate it.
Here's a copy of the thread:

A) Love is Essential = who You are = 1 point
B) A human life = God = Everything = 1 point
A life without Love =
B) - A) = 1 - 1 = 0 (zero)
A life with Love =
B) + A) = 1 + 1 = 2
To get the +1, you have to give the +1 first.
Life is Love = 1 (a life)
No Love = 0 (death while alive)
While there's life, there's a chance to earn your +1.
Life/Time is passing like a bullet train.
Precluding the zero is worth an all out effort.
Don't let anybody stop you.

No response from Sculptor
When I saw your "even handed moderation" suggestion I wondered
if you would be able to explain that cryptic term to the moderators,
so I challenged it as a statement I believed you would not be able
to elaborate upon because it quite possibly didn't mean anything.
It seemed like mumbo jumbo** to me, like something a well meaning
but unconscious priest might say to impress his trusting flock that he
was a wise authority and they (their minds) were in good hands.
// ** mumbo jumbo = "senseless or pretentious language...."
Can you say what you mean? It's important in Life for any person to
be able to make some effort to clearly explain what they mean in
their utterances. A person who cannot express themselves clearly
still has some responsibility to try and make themselves understood
if they can because their listeners are usually not mind readers,
otherwise the burden of ensuring that understanding has followed
communication falls upon their listener, who also has a responsibility
to listen carefully, communication-understanding being a two person
You do have a responsibility to communicate clearly what you mean.
Everyone here does....
Can PN members rely on you to make an effort to explain or
substantiate your utterances?
