Thanks Mikey Q!
Eluard and I have established a truce, but I certainly appreciate your kind words.
I am self-deprecating but not completely uneducated.
My previous reference to "spinning" was based upon my understanding of the word hyperbole:
Main Entry: hyperbole
Part of Speech: noun
Synonyms: PR*, amplification, ballyhoo, big talk*, coloring*, distortion, embellishment, embroidering, enlargement, hype*, magnification, metaphor, overstatement, puff, tall talk*
Source: Roget's New Millennium™ Thesaurus, First Edition (v 1.3.1)
The only question I really have is, if Eluard is upset with pluran, why did he choose to quote me and drag me into this when he should have confronted pluran directly?
