    Thermite,

    I've only deleted a handfull of posts in the last 10+ years. There were others that should have been deleted but weren't.

    Keeping a thread on-topic is a PM standard.
    I didn't make it up. I did suggest a new thread on the subject.

    Most days you get overly badge-heavy folks just take the whole damned subject of metrology off to some other venue.

    Guess that lightens the workload, but folk are only stumbling into the metrology forum at all by ACCIDENT last year or three.

    Your own at the head of that list.

    Try it. Pull every single post of your own from this very thread. The thread stands and still adds value to PM and its user community.

    The reverse is not equally true, no matter WHICH other post or combination of posts you delete.

    A "moderator" needs to be:

    A) "moderate". Not a Zealot.

    B) An observer, not a "player".

    C) Versed in HUMAN INTERACTIONS. Not necessarily the subject at hand. A phys ed teacher might be the more even hand, here.

    D) Ever mindful that CONTENT comes from the participants!

    WHEN .. a "Moderator" attempts to be "the guy" who is the dominant expert on a forum subject?

    Others just take THEIR various and sundry footballs and go elsewhere.

    Leaving you to pass your own football.

    If you can even swallow it.

    Thermite,

    I notice you conveniently omitted the part of my quote about posts being on-topic.

    Of course I did.

    When, ever, WAS there any other "topic" but the arrogant display of your dominance of the field of metrology to the detriment of the contribution of OTHER folks some of us might have wished to HEAR from - be that in initial agreement, later agreement, grudging agreement, or NEVER agreement - as to things WE are still seeking a better understanding OF?

    Warts and all.

    Folks out here in radioland actually have to USE this shit, Professor!
    Sometimes, we get it wrong enough, we don't even get to EAT reg'lar like!

    You want "static"? Frozen in time? A MONUMENT? To yourself?

    Relocate to Antarctica and dig down. Really deep. Take along something that needs scraped, BTW. You may have company.

    It still won't last forever.

    Any organ, organism, organisation, or community-of as ceases to learn, grow, adapt, include, and share?

    Has begun to die.

    Thermite,

    I hope what you're saying is not true.
    It was certainly never my intent.
    I'm just as anxious to learn new things as anyone else.
    And I certainly do not know everything, nor do I claim to.

    If my actions suggest otherwise, I sincerely apologize.

    - Leigh

    I never intended to become a world class ASSHOLE, either, Neal.

    But everybody has to be good at something.. and folks kept finding new uses for that, too. So here we are.

    Let's learn, grow, and move on, shall we?

    That's certainly a good idea.

    It should be noted that it's a normal part of the calibration procedure for gauge blocks to stone them before measuring them...

    One of my sets still had its stone. OTOH, its "Dearborne Gage" and not exactly ..."young".. so this Mitutoyo thing is interesting. I can't justify the spend. hven't had the need, and the old stone must have been good enough.

    I had ass u me'ed that it was glazed smooth from polymerized oils. Seems not, if it was always MEANT to be practically glass-smooth, yah?

    "Dated" Iyam. Again. still-yet.

    Certainly smoother than what I have, Gregor.

    A small, thin "translucent" yellowish-white hard Arkansas and a big, fat, DoAll black granite, both well over fifty years old.
