What is pasheema

A typo, Bingley; it is Pashmeena, a wool much in fashion at one time for its fineness of texture. The wool is obtained *only from the underbelly of a specific mountain goat unlike the Cashmere which is usually thicker and can be from any regular mountian goat. oftroy will certainly know more on this. The shahtoosh wool comes from a endangered goat (?antelope) called the Chiru. The poor thing has been mercilessly slaughtered for its wool and all for the sake of stupid human indulgence.

I offered you offence but you didn't take it.

You're right. I don't find you offensive. [Maybe because I don't know who "Ron Obvious" is. Actually, I don't mind being "obvious" ... as long as I'm obviously right.] Enjoy your sense of humor. Goooo Musick.

You were not "Obvious" to me before.

For those following this soap opera, moss here has also posted as wordminstrel, plutarch (my favorite! a "securities trader in Vancouver"), semperon and vbq. Maybe other sock puppets, too, these are the ones that were obvious to me. You'll notice the link to the Omegatist thread has three of his personae prolonging a silly quid-pro-quo; yes, actually "talking" to each other.

So, while I appreciate your link, dody, and have been writing and talking about polarization in chat rooms & message boards for a long time, I feel that when you've got a group that comfortably discuss an array of topics vis-a-vis one (well, there have been a couple of others, but this one is classic) who comes in as any of half a dozen different screen names (many times just to stir things up), you gotta figure the playing field isn't exactly level.

Oh, I think the playing field is pretty level, AnnaS. Faldage just wore me out and now it looks like your shift.

All those buried sock puppets can't "stir it up" half as much as one determined tag team.

A pashmina is also a very wide scarf made from that wool? It is worn over a coat - like a shawl - but it is a long rectangle instead of the triangle of a shawl. I know it was very popular last winter.

Moss is going to put a sock in this sock puppet, for now, AnnaS.

But I might come back as a "Stranger" in typically innocent and respectful fashion, and, I think it goes without saying, if there is any unprovoked Falduggery directed my way, we shall pick up, Faldage and I, where we left off.

[If the apprehension of that benefits some other innocent "Stranger" in the meantime, so much the better.]
