Rob - I have got some bad news for you.

That is a picture of a telephone "pole."

Now, you might argue that it is a telephone pole being used as a post but at the end of the day it is a telephone pole. There is no such thing as a telephone post unfortunately. Sorry to break it to you but I thought you needed to know that it is not the greatest post ever Frown Now, if you want to argue it is the greatest pole ever, then maybe you are on to something there Big Grin
CD,
I'm willing to argue this one (What a surprise!). It may or may not be a great post but regardless of it's ancestry it is certainly a fencepost. I think you need to take a long hard look at your bias in this matter. What do you have against poles? Razz

Next thing we'll hear is that "some of your best fences are poles".

I thought I might face some resistance on this one

How about this, since this is a baseball site, was the greatest "pole" ever Carl Yastremski?
Can not a telephone pole not be something different later on in it's life when it gets old? It's top may have rotted but it's body was still firm and after it was no longer able to be a post could it be a fire log?

Does someone that starts out as a pitcher than changes to an outfielder still be known as a pitcher. I think not.

Pole, post, or log, it will have a full life.
Rob,

Sorry, but I'm still trying to analyze rotational vs. linear in the photo you posted. The wooden apparatus appears that it might be slowly rotating, but the barbed wire barriers flatten out to linear position rather quickly.

Can you show any 30 fps video before I offer my opinion on this post? Big Grin
