I stand steadfast by my 'snit' today, just as I did the day I wrote that 'snitty' post.

Bruce,

I meant no disrespect by labeling your post a "snit".
I have lavished your posts with recommendations as often as the next guy, but I felt that your cutting Tinker off at the knees that way was inappropriate for the reasons I have stated already.

There are some who post here that do a disproportionate amount of the heavy lifting, Tinker being formost, I believe, and when he gets excited enough about a topic to do all that work, and then share it with us FOR FREE! I think it is worth discussing.

Furthermore, I think that just as much can be learned from discussing why a company IS NOT a gorilla as one that is.

There are many ways to learn. This board has been an invaluable resource, and it's thanks to people like Tinkershaw and you, who selflessly give of their time and knowledge and expect little in return but consideration of their ideas.

That consideration doesn't cost me anything and I give it freely.

So even though I don't always agree with what you say, I will fight to the death your right to say it (OK, maybe not to the death, but to SOME extent).

Thanks again.

Tim
