Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

I was reading on another engineering
forum (can I give the name? Eng-Tips.com) recently
about the use of the word "squoze." You have probably
heard it used as the past-tense of "squeeze." That
post, if I remember correctly, talked about a lawyer
using it in the courtroom.
A lot of recently
coined words and phrases tend to make it into the
dictionaries rather quickly, but I cheked Dictionary.com
and it doesn't have a listing for squoze yet. MiriamWebster.com
actually lists it, but you have to pay to read it.
Bartelby says, "is a Nonstandard dialectal form
of the weak verb squeeze, used jocularly in Casual
contexts in place of the Standard past tense or
past participle form, squeezed. Analogy with the
past tense of freeze, froze, probably accounts for
I personally never use the word "squoze."
I think is make you sound ignorant. Anybody else
have an opinion?
