1) actually I don't think any of you are dumb, I just knew that you'd read the post if I wrote it that way.

2) just because the tour has been slow for the last few days doesn't mean you have to get pissed at everyone here (for the euros who don't know: pissed=angry in this context, not drunk)

3) ragging on the way someone spells a word is not a good way to make friends. Nobody thinks it is funny (except for the moral/morale one, but that's not the point) Stop doing it, it's rude. When someone says something that just really doesn't click for you, you have every right & responsibility to discuss it with them. IMO, you can even post a picture of a blue-ribbon donkey if you really feel that strongly about the issue, but to attack someone's person is simply ignorant. Fact is: nobody in here knows anything about anyone else in here that they arn't reading and interprating(SP) off a computer screen. We've all had someone else get mad at us because they misunderstood something we've typed, right?
Anyway... the moral here is: quit it with the personal attacks, this board pretty much sucks when we go there. And if you feel you've been the victim of a personal attack, let it go. If someone hates you for something you type, then that person isn't going to be convinced or silenced by anything you type anyway.
k, I'm done with my little rant and I'm getting of my podium now. Have a great day.

What is the deal with posting stuff for the sole purpose of provoking a response? Is that what it takes to stroke your ego?

When you see an animal, do you poke it with a stick until it bites you?

your right! Having differing ideas and view points is what the board exists for. The childish banter is a waste of CPU's. I participated in it yesterday and regret it. Sorry all for the bad behavior. I was having a bad day and I let it get the best of me.
