See my Private Message - I said exactly the same thing.jasonxx wrote:wether this initial posting was in apropriate or not it has drawn the most interest and brought out some new and interesting info. Please remove the Curse Marcus
Honestly, there's nothing wrong with being a Pezhetairos. Of course, you've been slightly stymied by having the problem with your email and having to start using a different address - you had to start from scratch.jasonxx wrote:Marcus Hail
I could be here a long time I noticed Alejandro with 200+Postings and still is only a foot soldier. I gotta come up with a better ploy. I kinda like the Idea of a Murcus Curse maybe itll change my luck. Extend the curse to Saturday and the lottery. Im getting Desperate and wil try anything.
I checked the information that Thomas supplied when we changed to the present format. You'll become a Companion at 250 posts. Considering that you're presently hovering around 150 posts I think, um, well, yeah ... a hundred or so posts containing emoticons alone just might get under the skin of other members! Can we not just consider you an Honorary Companion (you could add it to your signature) for the time being?jasonxx wrote:I could be here a long time I noticed Alejandro with 200+Postings and still is only a foot soldier.

The Latin is:amyntoros wrote:... the “complicated pun.” Would please elaborate on this for us, preferably translating as you go along, for I believe that only a few of us have any familiarity with the language. And I am most curious as to why these references should be “coded” in any way, especially the one from Curtius. He’s quite frank about Alexander’s sexual relationship with Bagoas. Why then hide a reference to the A/H relationship in a complicated pun that no historian, including Jeanne, seems to have noticed?
