As seen on Virginia Commonwealth University professor steev price's oriental rug website:
"What surprised me a little was that there didn't seem much interest in further discussing the design origins etc. Perhaps there isn't much to say..."
Another clownland pipe dream: that anyone who posts there has enough rug savvy and expertise to discuss any pre-airport-art period rug related topic at length.
The rug challenged professor and his cadre of rug nincompoops and worse are barely capable of the most rudimentary rug analysis or commentary and anyone who expects more from them would have to be equally as amateur and deficient as they.
It's really not funny but sad because some of the posters, like the person responsible for the quote above, who get ensnared in price's venus flytrap of a rug website, are genuine in their pursuit of rug knowledge. And while RK is the first to admit how truly hard it is to learn about pre-commercial period oriental rugs, trying to do so on professor clown's rug sandbox is not only a waste of effort but also an impossibility.
Think we are wrong? Go look back in the clownland's archives and you will see the same stupid opinions and dumber than rocks responses were being issues years ago. The level of commentary has not changed for the better -- and changing for the worse would be an impossibility.
And that, dear readers is funny.
