Are you for real Steven??

Ok so there is no conventional attribution line because it was
cut-pasted from elsewhere in the thread but there is a clear
and unequivocal prefix of "OP subject as well as post".

Why/how should there be any ambiguity that that is Shiva??

Since you are merrily throwing around mis-attribution charges please explain the logic by which "Steven" == "OP"

Or are not aware OP means 'original post(er)'?

Likewise all the below '[allegedly Steven]s'...

And what kind of conversation is it if I ask you

as a question ABOUT you?

How you are able to confuse a question addressed TO you into a question
ABOUT you is beyond me.

Did you run out of your morning coffee or somethin?
