Hi Stu, you wrote: "I don't think anyone seriously thought you wanted to consort with fascists, FWIW."

So, how should I interpret your previous message (below) and your quoting of Phil?

Woah. I can think of nothing less Tolkienian (or Colbertine) than proudly declaring excitement over the prospect of gaining white supremacist readership. I suppose if money is the only object...

And then he can re-issue the dictionary with yet another title and get the Q-Anon money twice-over. Rinse and repeat! I've always believed David Day is a genius, making the same tired material pay for itself again and again and again...

[Admin hat on]

I'm going to keep a close moderator eye here, I think we are pretty much at the end of this particular topic once David's (fair) questions are answered.

David, I cannot speak for the others intent, but I interpreted your comment

David Day wrote:

Of course, like Stephen, the Q-Anon’s would have to buy a copy of the Dictionary and read it first. So, excellent! Sounds like I’ll have whole new pool of readers.

as meant in humor. But, joke or not, I think it is perfectly fair to call that a non-Tolkienian thing to say.

David, I'm not wasting time arguing with you over something so absurd - you clearly came here for an argument. I don't think there is any question to answer. Philomythos pointed out the logical flaw in your smug post and I answered that in jest. It seems like we were all posting in Jest, so perhaps we should just call the topic closed?

Calling the topic closed. Thanks all! Don't forget to tip your waiter.
