I mean to understand what he said about the way of commenting that is sometimes practiced.
About OLB, everybody has his thoughts about it and I'm not pretending to be able to look into one's mind.
What I post, you seem not able to grasp fully.
This is not something I invent, or some other 'crazy' etymologist, this is what scientists have been saying for about the time the classic etymology/history took shape.
To diminish my part in it: clearly not my invention, in this case it's written by Schrieck. Other cases Stevin, still other Van Gorp, still other to many to name.
If you think you can afford yourself to call their studies not worth more then childish gibberish, thanks for clearing this up -> people can take this in their perception of other posts :-)
Walk the talk and show how all other mythic etymology practised here in circles, gives the same short and simple word explanations as should be the case with 'original' language.
I am not fast at judgement, but I have read all of your posts from the moment you registered here.
Your 'sources' of wordplay are guys who had some really crazy ideas. Crazy ideas are not bad, but eventually these ideas were proven wrong.
Deal with that, or stay living in the past, dreaming ancient dreams.
The rest of us moved on, with or without you.
