My apols for the poor phrasing.
Yeah, I understand the policy. My comment was aimed at Stellar Dendrite, who has a sense of humor, knowing that I was kidding. The smile face meant that I was kidding. Stellar Dendrite recognized that and felt no need to respond.
The rift, rift, rift was a comment made about another article posted by Stellar Dendrite, of course, which SD knew too. It seems an inside joke has now gone to the dogs.
