    You do understand what calling somone a nincompoop means?

    Do you believe yourself to be above the rules of the TOS?

    No, I think it lacks a certain savor and snap. Probably someone else.

    Haha! I couldn’t remember writing it but it just sounded like something I’d write. Made me laugh reading it too, which is poor forum I suppose, laughing at your own humour.

    Can one plagiarize oneself? In a manner of speaking, yes. There is even a word for this: cryptomnesia.

    Cryptomnesia occurs when a forgotten memory returns without its being recognized as such by the subject, who believes it is something new and original.

    I wonder how many knew that. I had to look it up!

    Is this what moves you to write posts full of things everyone knows?

    Are you trying to tell me everyone knew what 'Cryptomnesia' meant, like it was a word used daily?

    I don't know that you even knew, would have to take you on your word for whatever that is worth.

    If I were to list people who did know, I wouldn't have you on that list! 😉

    There is nothing wrong with laughing at your own humour or yourself. The world has changed so much since that thread back in 2019.
