Chas, I don’t believe I ever asked anyone to “respond the way I want them to or tried to tell anyone how to live their lives.”

Yes, and it’s just as annoying. You get into a really important topic that calls for discussion (not frivolity) and, even without using a compass, it heads off course. I mean, where’s the respect for the poster when he genuinely needs to discuss an issue (like I did with my burnout).

Do you think I’m that stupid or ignorant that I expect even 2 people to be on the same page?

That will only happen when there’s another “Great Plague of the 1600’s” where half of the world population suddenly disappears.

Chas, not to be insulting, but do you drink when you read my posts? You have a known habit of twisting my words around. It’s like you stay up at night waiting for me to post so you can manipulate what I actually say and maybe that’s the only way you get a good night’s sleep? Can’t you maybe take up knitting or something instead?

There’s nothing wrong with that. Read what I said again. It was an observation NOT a criticism.

That’s temporary. There’s China, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom working their way up the ladder! What does that tell you?

Chas, what on Earth are you talking about? For the record, I don’t care what anyone does as long as it doesn’t affect me…period! I can’t say it much clearer than that. Is it possible that you’re speaking about yourself?

Yes, you did and a simple “sorry” doesn’t give you license to be ill-mannered. Personally, I’m really tired of having to defend something I write that doesn‘t please you. I asked you once before……If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all. And, definitely, please do not take my words out of context like you tend to do. I enjoy being on the Synthzone….until…..I read one of your “attack” posts directed at me.

Otherwise, please keep on posting your other messages. I enjoy your posts because you’re a lot like me…..we are both not hesitant call things the way they are.

Oh, you mean the persecution complex? Yeah, but I earned mine smile. And BTW, I don't single you out. I'll respond negatively to anyone's post if I think that's the proper response (well, except DonM, but that's only because he's 6'8", 250lbs, and has a badge and GUN smile ). But as I've said before, if you post in a public forum, you may not always get the exact response you want (especially if you only want 'warm fuzzies'). Since you have rebutted every sentence in my "attack" post, it hard for me to understand how you can "enjoy" them. You also said "Otherwise, please keep on posting your other messages." which seems to imply that it's okay, enjoyable even, for me to 'attack' others, just not you. Hey, you gotta' admit, you DO leave some nice breadcrumbs out there smile. You claim not to be critical of others or judgmental; I don't quite agree but keep posting, it make for some interesting and lively discussions. If you lived closer, we'd probably meet at some coffee shop every Saturday morning and have the same 'friendly' discussions (and it would be the highlight of our week smile ).

Geeze Mark, I was hoping you would say I had the best post and won the new 50-foot sailing yacht. Oh well, maybe next time. wink
