    • Thanks for dropping by! Indeed, o Steward of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area! And these fields of study will only become more interesting going into the future.

Would etymologists of the future get the chance to dissect how socmed might have evolved into a veritable wordwar zone when they look at our present times?
