Lemniscate - it was actually an ironic dig at the (performing) ethics of those involved.

I think not there Rex...

Money is the true illusion, as man can live without money, but money can not live without man... And that's strange as when I open my wallet there is plenty of illusion there, but it means nothing in the larger picture of the universe...

Sure, no worries.

I wonder, though, if you would point out who you are referring to as "those involved", define ethics, elucidate their ethics, define irony, then point out where the irony was, exactly. If you 2ould, I would love to see it. If not, no worries.

After all, it would just prove we can all use the formula "Insert name - it was actually an ironic dig at [insert some all-encompassing word] [insert some unsubstantiated referential index]." You'd think somebody would put out some kind of tape series where you are taught to make vague statements seem applicable without a shred of information. Oh wait, the excellent Wonder Words series is already out.

Registered trade marks are not the only type of trade mark. As long as a logo or service mark is used in commerce it is still legally considered a trade mark. All they have to do is prove that they have used it in the past in commerce and then you will have to cease and desist.

Lemniscate said: "We should all have a competition and write the most outrageous, over the top, absolutely ridiculous posts and see how many people fall for them."

You mean, people aren't already doing so???? Or was that irony?

Number 1. I'm not using their logo.
Number 2. I'm not using their service mark.
Number 3. To protect a service mark, it must be registered to really protect oneself.
Number 4. Just what are you writing about when you say logo and or service mark...?

Since the thread has been removed where I had this posted... here is something regarding people's attempts to rewrite history....from... yep... Leonard Cohen!!! ((Its only fun until someone loses an eye (2 points to the first poster to identify that film that classic line is fun (hint: I double dog dare ya)...))

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
that's how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died

Everybody talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stem rose
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that youve been faithful
Ah give or take a night or two
Everybody knows youve been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
that's how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
that's how it goes
Everybody knows

And everybody knows that its now or never
Everybody knows that its me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Ah when youve done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Old black joes still pickin cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows

And everybody knows that the plague is coming
Everybody knows that its moving fast
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
But theres gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose
What everybody knows

And everybody knows that youre in trouble
Everybody knows what youve been through
From the bloody cross on top of calvary
To the beach of malibu
Everybody knows its coming apart
Take one last look at this sacred heart
Before it blows
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
that's how it goes
Everybody knows

Oh everybody knows, everybody knows
that's how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows

A Christmas Story?

Or is that "you'll shoot your eye out!"?

(Hmmm, both perhaps...)

More importantly what do these points do?

Leminscate: It's known as dry humor, sarcastic and ironic statements don't need to slap you in the face with the force of a Charlie Chaplin film (unless you're a non-British script writer.)

I was referring to RileyG and his band of 'reading giving' 'paranormal promoters' who through past conversations and observations on this forums stand a long way from my ethical viewpoint.

My (ironic, and imo humorous) contention was that for such people, keeping an ethical high ground is an important concept - therefore they should consider changing the name.

I hope that clears it up for you. Don't feel bad about you inability to humor in everything I write. Most of it is for my own amusement, if 10% of people 'get it' then that's just a bonus. You're not alone.

Daktari,

To return to that long lost thread in the ether...

I still think if Leonard was here with us in this Green Café he'd sing:

The rain falls down on last year's man,
that's a jew's harp on the table,
that's a crayon in his hand.
And the corners of the blueprint are ruined since they rolled
far past the stems of thumbtacks
that still throw shadows on the wood.
And the skylight is like skin for a drum I'll never mend
and all the rain falls down amen
on the works of last year's man.
Smile When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth...Smile
