When I say "the final word" it is what I think about my participation in this thread. Nothing else.

Your final word is up to you.

Usually when we say "the" final word, we mean the final word on the topic for everybody, ie. the only correct answer. I would have understood your meaning if you had said something like "my final word." I understand that not everybody here is a native speaker of English, though, and not even native speakers read everything exactly the same way. Thanks for clearing it up.

So never assume: because "when you assume, you make an ass of you and me" (a popular saying in the military).

I know this saying well. It is the basis for my favorite scene from the TV comedy "The Odd Couple"!

It's funny that you mention it, because it was exactly the phrase that came to mind when I read your original post, which seems to assume (incorrectly) that the people you're arguing against don't understand the meaning of an f/ stop or exposure.
