Ah, good one, sport! Very nice. Bigot are ya?
With a sense of humor like that, I'm sure lots of people laugh at you.
Here I quote you, a couple posts back:
"Surfaced" (S2S, S2S1E, etc.) stock is primarily sold to folks who don't own
jointers, or don't want to have to. You do NOT have to specify that it be
"jointed" if the dealer is following accepted industry standards/practices.
Until you admit that basic concept, there is no further point in listening
to your misconceptions.'

Oookay... done. You imply in the quote above that if a person buys S2S lumber
there is no need to run it through a jointer, i.e. it's already
been done. And that's what you're wrong about. I'm not parroting, that's
a direct quote up there.

: And that proves what?
Your post led me to believe that you thought that
a) if a person buys S2S, it's because doing so makes having a jointer
b) if a person doesn't own a jointer, he/she ought to buy S2S lumber.
I was noting that a person can buy S2S lumber for other reasons,
including the lack of an alternative. I can get some 50 or so domestic
and exotic hardwoods within a 15-minute drive from my house. Every stick
and board is S2S or better.

Go. Look. Up. What. The. Terms. Actually. Mean.
As another poster noted, these terms are defined in the
industry. You don't get to redefine them at will.
S2S = surfaced two sides, on a planer.
S2S1E = that, plus straight-line ripped on one edge.
If you don't believe me, ask someone in the industry. Call a
mill or a hardwood supplier and ask them to
define it. You'll get the same information. Look it up in a book
if you can.
S2S =/= surfaced on ANY side with a jointer.

Back at ya.
: What, in saying that you don't have to specify "jointing" when purchasing
: S2S1E lumber?
: Once again, it is simply NOT necessary!
You're either deliberately being thick, or you got a comprehension
: Now, let's just cut to the chase. Rather than dignify any further responses
: from you with replies, lets just say you are still the dickhead you were
: back when ostriches were from Australia, so, once again, go fuck yourself.
What are you, thirteen?
