Was it:

Or

"The Judges are not the men who will be blamed for nothing".

Or something else?

A problem for you, no?

Everyone here can see that you are not able to understand.

How many times do you want to say it?

You can discuss any version you like. When you refer to a specific version you can give the reference.

You can also use a generally understood version and write:

Quote:
The general understanding of the text

"The Juwes are the men that will not be blamed for nothing"
You often become very excited for no reason at all.

That is a shame.

Well, my dear boy, I suppose I will say that I'm not able to understand all your questions every time you post that I am devaluing them.

But when, a little earlier, I suggested that "The Judges are the men who will not be blamed for nothing" was tautological because "are the men" is superfluous you replied that the correct words were "are NOT the men".

The more this exchange moves (if it actually does), the more it reminds me of the early seventies Pong video game but, in this case, the ball never passes through and seemingly will never pass. One day, we will hopefully see a 'GAME OVER' message. LOL

Respectfully,
Hercule Poirot.

Pong was way more fun than anything Pierre posts.

Pierre, I have a genuine question for you, sir.

Exactly how many times do you want David Orsam to list in entertaining detail your errors, your hypocrisy, your faulty reasoning, the insufficiency and sloppiness of your goal-oriented research, your woeful self-contradictions?

Are you not yet tired of it? You lock horns with him every time you plague the boards, and you haven't yet come away with so much as a single draw. Your arguments are conclusively shown to be bunk, every single time.

Think of your profession, old chap. You're giving historians/scientists a bad name. Mere amateurs are - to borrow a phrase from yoof culture - totally owning you.

I used to think you tediously arrogant, but in fact it becomes more and more clear that nobody with a modicum of self-respect would continue to beclown himself in this way. Your persistence is grimly entertaining. I keep having to remind myself that you were not put on this earth merely for my amusement.

That's not a good sign, Pierre.

By the way - have you found your final piece of case-closing evidence yet? It's been a while. Any luck? No?

Really?

Shame.

Actually more like pong VS. CAll of Duty
