Actually I got tired of talking to the silent wall - after several warnings and many pleas I turned the site off - if they do not want to talk to me why should I talk to them? [img]images/smilies/shrug.gif[/img]

Hello SYMIX !!!

I think it would be necessary to leave the site alive without FORUM. The site was well-constructed. I appreciated IGOR RYBAKOV's analysis.

Hi Symix,
You had some interesting and funny pictures of Iser Kuperman on your site. Maybe you can place them here?
Thanks!

Hello Hanco,

SYMIX usually post opinions on SHASHKI FORUM.
I will copy your message there.

I saw a note here that Kuperman was sometimes a funny man. Well - see for yourself!

Thanks Symix! [img]images/smilies/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] http://www.fmjd.org/bb/viewtopic.php?p= ... ght=#42762
I thought you also had a picture of Kuperman in a huge chair, which made him look like a dwarf. Very funny because of the face he had in that position. You still have that one?

That photo is somewhat disrespectful and I decided it was not proper for the occasion.

I don't agree at all that it's disrespectful. That photo showed Kuperman's modesty. Kuperman could make himself small if necessary.
One of the virtues of the real great.
That picture also showed Kuperman's self-mockery. It was one of the best on your site!!
I really regret your decision...

But thank you for this one!
