Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Sorry, I guess, I misused you diary to make a statement about the situation with Jacob, as it has been mentioned in various places (and his name showed up here again) - so I used this place to clarify. :-)

I don't think you misused anything.  It may have been my diary but this is our conversation and people are free to bring up other topics if they so wish As thread originator I don't think I have the right to insist that people should only respond to my diary or using my frame of reference.  

One of Jacob's complaints was that I had deviated from his line of argument and topic of conversation.  Tough.  It happens, and that is one of the beauties of online forums and casual conversations in real life.  No single person "owns" the conversation.  

This is not a university or business seminar where the lecturer/leader rules people out of order if they stray from his topic or frame of reference.  The beauty of the "multi-threaded" discussion format is that people can always pick up on the original argument even as other side arguments are being conducted.
