If you are going to quote me you might include the context which is RHETORIC.

Ethos is the weird one in that it is less action (will) rather than the authority of the speaker – someone who has experience or has spoken before & the people approved & good results were achieved. 
good point Mark … i was actually looking for an appropriate context to put in the about url …. couldnt find a perfect one … what specific context url do you suggest?   

I highlighted that “definiion” just because it was the first time you clearly defined its significance to me … even though you have used it many times.   I thoough it deserved it’s own place in our mind.

I was not trying to quote you, I was stating what is, as I experience it. I actually agree with your definition here in general. My other quote was about when and where to use each, not what these things are.

pondering looks like a quote to me with my name after it – maybe try has more than one meaning – to most these days it is not doing but wanting to do or starting to do but achieving no results

The comment was for whomsoever wrote the “not trying to quote you” comment – apparently not about you seth.  laugh …. sometimes thing are not all about you. 
From the pdf – the first ¶

p.s. If you want to collaborate for a time on a thought, you can always move it to a shared group and then back when you are done. Not quite as easy as the feature you are considering, but it is nice that it is possible.

btw,  Mark, can you edit this thought yourself?
M. 2016-03-12 09:01:07 [item 20446#49062]
Apparently not – it is an open group though
seth 2016-03-12 09:09:15 [item 20446#49064]
yes … the group is owned by group seth … and you can add your own thoughts and make comments on any person’s thoughts … but we can not edite each others thoughts.   

maybe there should be some way that a person can say in an “open” group like this that a specific thought can be allowed to be edited by another person.  

anyway … just to keep things simple here on this important thought … you can tell what you want included in the body of the thought … eg, what is the url of the pdf file here?  should i inlude the clip from it you flashed above?
It is mentioned here.  (google drive) or a  different copy provided here temporarily new
