    You made an interesting observation, Mr. Bokhbout. It was a surprising bit of news to me, I thought about it, and I think it is completely inaccurate, but might be due to an optical illusion. Let me explain. Usually I don't post in all the available forums, mostly only in one or two, and today it was a single forum, here. Usually my first posting expresses my own original thoughts and response to the article, and many times these are thoughts that were brewing in me for quite a while. I tend not to search other people's posting to make positive or negative comments on. I read some, but mostly without comment (unlike your teacher's image). Now, I do get some responses to my own posting. If they are formulated politely, and if they are not completely out of reasonableness, I respond. Such an exchange might repeat itself. That is the way it works. If you get the impression that I try to control or "circulate" the ideas in this forum, this might be because my first posting usually presents (my own) new ideas, or less-known facts, and people sometimes pick up on them. This is the optical illusion effect I was referring to. If you try this yourself, you might find yourself at the center of a discussion. But this has to start with having some idea to present.
