Dear Mr. Lewis,
If you read most of the RK website you will quickly realize that Mr. Cassin is more interested in personalities and criticizing people than discussing rugs, so there is no purpose served in posting one's name.
RK REPLIES: Listen up, fa, RK could really care less about you, or what you think about us.
However, if you post your "opinions" about RK on the net, where anyone can read them, your doing so will surely be of concern to us.
RK does not spend too much time talking about rugs here because we are not interested in educating others.
We wrote in the introduction to one of the books we made "Showing is teaching", so forget about talking.
Nevertheless, we are, nonetheless, very interested in sharing our knowledge, ideas and yes, interest, with others, and we feel we have done that enough to satisfy all concerned.
Regardless, your comments are besides being way incorrect, impertinent and we suggest, should you wish to remain able to view and interact here on RugKazbah.com, you learn to speak truth and not innuendo and BS about RK.
In addition, your lame "rational" for not posting your name is just that, lame. It is not only feeble but downright dumb and stupid.
It is also clearly prejudiced and motivated your agenda to prove what a big bad terror RK supposedly is.
Need we say more?
He will just take an ad hominim approach to the response. I would prefer to talk about rugs and issues, which can be easily done without posting a name.
RK RELIES: If your logic and reasoning abilities are so poor and bent to believe such poppycock, we are sure you will not be able to discuss anything with RK.
We do not suffer fools well, better either get straight or get lost.
I am sure you know that. I don't know that your real name is John Lewis, and even if I did, I don't know anyone named John Lewis, so that would serve no purpose. I am keeping my posts to a discussion about rugs, not people, so let's get back to that.
RK REPLIES: Like dumbasss steev, you make false statements, like this BS, in the hope the listener will be conned into thinking they are true.
Remember, you are the one to start the slagging match, fa, not RK.
So get real, boy, if you want to remain here.
If you don't, once again, we'd suggest returning to the little backwater pond you've been floating in.
You are way over your head here.
It would be easier for experts and non-experts to assess this chuval if Mr. Cassin could clear up the remaining inconsistencies in his structural description. In my most recent post, I asked how the chuval could have much wider than tall knots and still have the same number of wefts and warps per square inch. Surely you have taken a close look at the pictures and could agree that the pictures don't agree with the description. If the chuval has a very high vertical to horizontal ratio, then by Mr. Cassin's criteria, that would suggest a later weaving. This is my last post on the subject. It bores me to ask legitimite(sic) questions, and get non-responsive and vituperative replies. Perhaps other readers will have more success by posting their own names, but I doubt it. FA.
RK REPLIES: Listen up once more, fa, since you have not proven you know anything about rugs, and for us this issue, the EBAY chuval, is over, why should we bother to do anything? We readily admitted we multiplied one incorrect number to ascertain the kpsi but the rest of our cursory analysis is correct.
We are willing to bet we have been making structural analyses long before you even knew what the words meant -- and we know how to do this quite proficiently.
So your position -- like that expressed by swindle, professor price=clown and that moron williams -- is nothing more than an agenda driven witch-hunt.
And, like them, you have proven yourself to be a know-nothing waste of time.
RK is sure we could run circles around you, even while we were asleep.
A part of our collection is published and online, go show us anything that is even comparable that you own.
Talk is cheap, fa, especially from someone who is too disingenuous to even post under their own name.
