    Hi; I *could* just continue and not tell you this as my own head finds it funny but Im telling you anyway. One of your "titles" for persons who contribute is *LUNINARY*.. which I snicker at as to its possible meaning. So if *LUMINARY* is ( cut&paste here)

    lu·mi·nar·y
    ˈlo͞oməˌnerē/
    noun
    1. 1.
      a person who inspires or influences others, especially one prominent in a particular sphere.
      "one of the luminaries of child psychiatry"
      synonyms: leading light, guiding light, inspiration, role model, hero, heroine, leader, expert, master
    2. 2.
      an artificial light.
    THEN one would believe the name would mean something to the effect of *One Who Sheds Light or Vision on the Subject*..and thats a nice name... but the word used

    hmm Luninary..is that a quip to mean *One who shares his own lunacy on the subject?

    lu·na·cy
    ˈlo͞onəsē/
    noun
    1. the state of being a lunatic; insanity (not in technical use).
      "it has been suggested that originality demands a degree of lunacy"
      synonyms: insanity, madness, mental illness, dementia,mania, psychosis;
      informalcraziness
      "originality demands a degree of lunacy"

    To that I find great humor..just my way of thinking..hehe

    I think I will see a typo corrected soon..Have a good day

    Good catch, it was correct before. Maybe you are right, we are thought of as lunatics.
