Okay, here's an odd but easy question. What is the giant rhubarb plant called locally in Chile? I know the latin name, but I didn't jot down the local name in my notebook.

I have a feeling that the OP is either "el p", or "px", based on the triple "---" in the quoted post, and some other minor details. I'd happily stay corrected ---- if mistaken!
The "---" for em rule is fairly common in some academic publishing, eg. in mathematics, and quite possibly in other areas like journalism, which the OP has already mentioned an association with. I'm not sure it's really a sign of having attained ultimate wisdom, shorly before dropping off the forum.

Senator, to be clear, I have no recollection of anyone by the name of "el p" or "px" and would ask that it be stricken from the record.

El P lives :!: The classic old-timer of the old-timers. And so it is.
Generally, just a SPAM KILLER. You are on your own in this forum. My personal mission here is done.

BUT when necessary, by way of ridicule and truth revelation we shalt do war.

Haaa Eukypat, or should I say JA JA JA JA JA JA JA, very funny-----I have heard tell of this el p myth and perhaps I came across him a few times in the south but he would no longer admit it I am supposing and just call on another round of tea and cakes for our once----I felt this anyway with out asking. I suspect that he was behind this myth and legend so I suppose he is still somewhere and somehow---and I did have my strong suspicions, but it was not to be and so it is.

Well, someday I want to re-read El P's post about firing his gun around and around his property to let intruders know it is off limits. One of the most hilarious, possibly even more so than Admin's classic: ALL BIRDS MUST DIE!
