    TeeDee the definition in the glossary is plain as day to me. Don't know why there's so much discussion about it.

    Thanks for putting the link to the glossary in you post.

    Now thats just silly! Why would you carry around bamboo when a length of rope does the exact same thing?

    I wouldn't, but I noticed that someone had proposed those as structural ridgelines elsewhere and somebody else thought they were a genius to do so.

    Thanks for clearing that up for me - they were just being silly and not really serious.

    Oh... no, no. I think you misunderstood.

    Those weren't proposed ideas for structural ridgelines, they were examples of structural ridgelines that people thought up long ago.

    edit: example D is an exception.

    I would appreciate it if you would either:

    1. start your own thread for re-defining the meaning of the term "structural ridgeline" and title the thread clearly for that purpose and post all of the pictures of supposed structural ridglines to that thread, or

    2. restrict all such re-definition attempts and pictures to the thread which you have managed to convert to that purpose - the thread on patents.

    I would appreciate your doing that, so that in the future, I and others will know that the thread contains your efforts to do so and we can either read, respond or ignore as we so choose. Thank You.
    I have started a separate thread and removed the offending material from your thread. I cannot remove the responses, but those who made them are encouraged to remove them to the new thread if they wish.

    Thanks for being polite to each other and working out a solution, TeeDee and FD...but in the future, if anyone wants a topic stripped out of a thread just let me know - I'll move the relevant posts into a new thread so the info isn't lost and doesn't have to be re-written, and it doesn't mess up the flow of the thread.
