The sentences and punctuation is correct. Maybe a few fragmented sentences... There is a bit of my posts that contain some through thought of information that might need to be ingested by the reader. I do agree, that it would be great, if some didn't read my posts.

It amazes me when a thread breaks down due to petty nitpicking.

I guess the adage of he who is without sin be the first to throw a stone does not apply here.

I try my best, but I am of the mindset that this is an internet forum and not an academic paper.

You're point is well taken, but I have a REAL problem when obvious erroneous information is presented as being correct.

For some reason, the definition of obvious erroneous information can get very political in the blink of an eye.

That "...contain some through thought.." Hmmm, I wonder if this is meant to say "... contain some thorough thought..."?

As far as some folks not reading your posts... Lord knows I do my best to look away. Much like driving by an apartment building on fire. While I attempt to look away, the imagined horror does occasionally get the best of me.

Not when it comes to English grammar. There are some areas in our lives where the absolute still reigns.

cas .....You make a perfect point here! For as long as I remember, when I see one of YOUR posts, I pay attention, as you have always spoken and conveyed your point(s) with clear & concise delivery...enough so that your POINT always seems to be evident, no matter what your education achievements were in the past. The important thing about YOUR posts is that they are usually interesting in content, and you seem to have a way with words such that anyone with half a brain should have NO problem understanding your ideas.

On the other hand, some of the guys are referring to someone that MAY choose to chime-in to many of our threads here, offering comments and ideas that seemingly have little or nothing to do with any sort of reasonable or redeeming value for the posted question. There is not much worse than a new, or inexperienced member asking a legitimate question, only to have someone reply with a bunch of rhetorical BS from the north side of the Twilight Zone. If a "newb" then goes out and spends a bundle based on the BS replies, nobody benefits, and someone is possibly left with an expensive (or even dangerous), ill-deserved end product. Just sayin'! DD

That's called "what if-ism". Maybe the newb has a brain and reads further. Certainly a lot more information is added.


My thoughts on the op question to this thread was/is near 90k in cash seems suspect. In theory...


This thread has been dead after the 1st page...
