Personally, I do not think it is that fun, but on the other side I do not think that any one should let it go, when someone, anyone, has different agendas than improving information.
By the way, is there anything the guy contributed, regarding Jerrycans, other than reposting other people's pictures?
I have been enquiring, discussing, comparing what we have always called ,by silent agreement, mistery jerrycans.
The goal, for me and for many others, was to reach a level of information that would enable us to stop calling those jerrycans mistery cans, not by changing the name, but by solving the mystery.
IMPOSING new definitions is not useful, and if the definitions are also flawed, plain detrimental.
Agreeing on definitions is the way to go, rather than stubbornly using one's own definition, even looking on purpose for the least opportunity to sneak it in the attempt to form a precedent.
Even from the early stages when talking mistery cans,no one ever considered German origin as possible.
Barring some enquirers, who were misled by the spout and the X, but promptly informed that what they owned belonged in allied environment.
Easy to check, for any one enough patient for the task..
Now, for instance, what is the use of this kind of question?
...but who says that all "Mistery Cans" were of German origin?
As if anyone had ever said anything like that.
Or what about this pearl:
..and quite frankly I am not focused on the "Mistery Cans".....
If so, why does he keep posting in these threads?
To introduce is latest discovery, of course! The mistery can are prototype cans, and that is how he want to call them, regardless of what the other guys think...
And that includes " The Cavalry", the dog pack and of course the group of those who are non willing to follow his theories, and are therefore labeled as non reasonable persons.
A childish trick he recently fell in love with.
In lack of other words, Chuck Lutz is the prototype of the Chuck Lutzes.
Oh well, Mark, given you really find it entertaining, let us see how long it will last!
