You know what really upsets me here is that I have posted hundreds of times on these forums, and always tried to be as helpful as possible. I spend a good portion of my day here, and actually looked forward to maybe being an Advisor one day, just for the accomplishment of being recognized for my helpfulness. So here I am using my lunch at work to try to help people on the forum, then, BOOM, I get a thread locked. It feels like I got slapped in the face and I did not even see it coming.
I've been not replying intentionaly because I didn't want you to get the impression that I had something against you. I do not, in any way. I know that you are a long standing member here and I respect your opinions greatly. "You" did not get the thread locked on your own. My first post in that thread stated that these threads can, as we now see, very easily end up with hurt feelings and high blood preasure. IMO
, the worst thing that can come from a treacherous discussion is the burning of bridges between members. Please understand that this was in no way an action "against you" but an action in an attempt to "keep the peace".
