well, i guess i deserve the dig

my intentions, while perhaps not clear to anyone other than myself, were
simply to clarify the one-to-many relationship between member and userid

a member can have multiple userids

the distinction is important because we are already well down the (wrong!)
path of associating author bios, pictures, aggregate ratings, et cetera, et
cetera, with a userid -- these things should be attached to the member
record instead

however, every time i want to start the discussion of member-versus-user, i
get hung up on the "what is a member" problem

which is where this thread is currently stuck

thanks, elfur, for your additional comments on thelist, and for directing
people to theforum

well, i guess since the above is all pretty serious, and since thechat is,
after all, the evolt list for offtopic stuff, then i guess i owe y'all an
off-offtopic tip here --
