I knew this thread wasn't gonna be good if he kept pushing that belief. Sorry Maine, shoulda listened. Here I am trying to help. Keep everyone friendly, give a friendly warning. Oh well. Why does no one ever listen to me?
Don't break your arm trying to pat yourself on the back there now, you need it for shooting.
Perhaps I would have been more attentive if you had come across in a more even fashion, without the use of "crap". There are those who would NOT take your use of that word and in that manner as "friendly".
That's one of the problems of posts in general, inflection and tone are lost, and so often is the intent.
I gave the man the benefit of the doubt, THEN he removed the doubt.
I've seen this before, and I've also seen people quick on the draw when someone expressed their opinion and it was taken incorrectly, or came across so, and the cry for banning and censorship goes out BEFORE all the info is known.
I was just being even handed, nothing more or less.
At my age and with my experience I don't need any schooling about or on people, I've just learned to NOT jump to conclusions, and that's it better to allow someone to hang themselves then to be perceived as the hangman.
