No, I don't mind. My first nativ language was macedonian and the second one is croatian. And here is my Flickr account:

We don't "object" or "comment" here. We just brain storming. Exercising our brains. Trying to escape or suspended our execution of the sentence.

Zantac is an antihistamine. However, prevacid is a proton pump inhibitor.

Zantac: The active ingredient in Zantac is ranitidine hydrochloride (HCl), USP, a histamine H2-receptor antagonist.

Prevacid: Generic Name: lansoprazole, Drug Class and Mechanism: Lansoprazole is in a class of drugs called proton pump inhibitors (PPI) which block the production of acid by the stomach.



Yeah I just got a sample of prevacid once for a week and I never really looked it up. I've been taking Zantac for close to a year and I'm hoping maybe soon they'll just give me some antibiotics. :lol:

Ah Ok. I apologise then. Second apology in one thread. I think I'll give up on this forum (but still update those great Youtube videos) until new studies are released.

Against my better judgment, I came back to read the rest of the thread...

Lyon wrote:Although he's on my "side" and may actually be ME, Malden's English struggles at times.

Now, if his English isn't and hadn't ever been a source of contention the "compliment" scenario might have been a consideration but as things are, sarcasm wins the ribbon.

Lyon, I gave the definition of compliment for the benefit of our global readers because compliment is often confused with complement by even native English language users. Giving definitions is nothing new for me. And I even help out people with their spelling, don't I, Scorpion?

It's nice to see that I wasn't the only highly educated person who thought you and Malden were the same person. I think that similar personalities attract and that Malden and you had fun pretending that his English skills were worse than they really are so people would think he and you were the same person -- it was a game the two of you played.

I don't accept Malden's "excuse" of mangling the English language as disrespectfully as he does, game or no game. I believe he does it on purpose, and I'M SICK OF IT. If he can't take the time to type English as correctly and as "fancy" as he has already proven he knows how to, then he should STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM HERE until he has the proper time to type a proper post. Lyon, I bet you're proud that someone seems to actually like you, someone who treats Dr. Sclafani just as disrespectfully as you do. Yes, two similar personalities. God help TIMS.

EDIT: Scorpion, I kept thinking about what you said, and I removed some paragraphs -- would you please snip the same paragraphs from your post? Thank you very much. :)

No, I used the word compliment because I thought you were being sarcastic, but perhaps you didn't understand what others thought. I used the definition for everyone.

I see through this!!!! I think Lyon is also HappyPoet!!!Hey maybe Lyon is actually me too!!!! Seriously though come on HappyPoet. I know we at times get testy with each other, especially over CCSVI, but there is no need for you to write this mess. I get upset with people on here too(ok down right PO'd) but I have also learned a great deal from some of the people who I don't see 1eye to 1eye with(no pun intended). One of my all time favorite responses to one of my posts came from Cheer. In one of my posts I compared CCSVI to goat serum which apparently did not go over real well with her. The response I got was "Aimspro......... PUUUUUUUUULEEeeeZE. I do not know why it struck me as funny but I remember laughing until I had tears in my eyes. Anyway I do give you credit with giving me some spelling support but actually I did not make a typo I was just checking to see who was paying attention! :wink:

Okay Scorpion... how about a bit of self-deprecation...

Concerned, I know it will be hard for you to tell from my posts here on TIMS, but I was once an English professor. Helping people with the English language (when I am able) is something I enjoy, and I NEVER intentionally make fun of someone's English skills, NEVER. Sassy? Cute word! :) Desires? Yuck! You said that word, not I.

Probably a brain game that everyone plays but when I was young an older cousin brought up the possibility that his mind might be the only thing in creation and everything, everyone and every situation is nothing more than the byproduct you would expect of a lonely mind left to it's own devices for eternity.

As anyone who has slept and dreamed knows, a single mind is capable of anything.

Of course, the truth of the matter is that everything in creation, including my older cousin and everyone/everything else, is a product of too much time and lonliness for my bored mind :D

I guess the point is that it doesn't matter what someone's pen name is, they are all me anyway.

HappyPoet is in the right here. Dr. Sclafani is doing more for people with CCSVI than any of us here. He has more than earned our respect.

I never brought it up, but I have not forgotten that immediately after Dr. Sclafani's IRB was rejected, someone thought it cute to post a quote of him saying he was sure his proposal would not be rejected. I found that hurtful.

You can tear apart his brain-barrel analogy, but you can't tear apart what he has done (symposium, Endovascular Today article, SIR group meeting to decide direction of CCSVI research, INVDS society with Dr. Haacke). Even a single liberation performed is more action than any of us accomplish sitting here talking.

I regretted that I responded to Malden's post in Dr. Sclafani's thread, in which he quoted the quote that here he stated was so awful. I didn't catch all the passive-aggressive undercurrents when I first read it.

HappyPoet, don't worry about anything here, you are better than this. If my original statement about Malden's english was ever truly a concern to anyone, I think it was neither a compliment nor a particularly sarcastic comment, just a reference to the earlier discussion and my suspicion that he was Lyon under another name.
