1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    It's interesting that each came to similar conclusions theologically from distant and different beginnings.

    Think about it.

    I believe ghulkhan's original request said "can be". Did it not?

    If it said "must be", well . . . that's a another thought altogether. Isn't it? [​IMG]

    I think you're misreading his original message. Misplaced modifiers! His first reply clarifies:
    basically pretty well known poeple who are living today and possibly teaching at a university
