I am really sorry if I got this wrong, but maybe there is a misunderstanding here...
I am not looking for you to "restate your position". I am looking for you to _argue for your position_! Did you really do this? Where?
(The question I asked was re. the Duke Leto quote - how does that fit into a world in which Paul left Caladan several times? Is the Duke perhaps retarded in your reading of Dune?)

You said this before. Points will be awarded when you actually do. Since you are focusing on OH, I presume you will go the Arnoldo-route on this one - anything from OH is suspect. I will ask you the same thing I asked him and Byron - when do we know if it is suspect? Whenever KJA says so?
(This, incidently, was about where Arnoldo ran away).

But you didn't really address any of them just now - you are aware this, right?

So like I said, if it makes you feel better to put me on your little list in your sig, have at it. But that doesn't make it true....just childish.
Ahh... A bit of personal attacks and lies about me to finish it off.
I don't think answering my questions is or should be important to you. Really. And I never said so, and you are misrepresenting me, yada, yada.
But _you_ claimed that you can and will defend your position that FH and KJA's work can, by some stretch of the imagination, be about the same universe! You then started to do so, and, like everyone else, stopped. I am calling attention to this fact.
So you can say "it's not important to me right now/anymore" all you want. You still count as another KJA fan who wasn't able to answer simple questions (such as how "forming spice" does not mean producing it).
The list in my sig is true, to the best of my knowledge. Otherwise, there'd be no point to it. If you, or anyone else, can show how it is wrong, or return to the discussion, I will of course remove any wrongful entries.
It may be childish to you, but I happen to believe in rational discourse. I want you guys to defend your position, and I think it speaks volumes that you won't. So I am going to keep mentioning it. And you are probably going to keep calling it, and me, names while claiming my insistence on rational debate is some kind of megalomania. So who is the fucking child here?
