I'd still get in trouble.

You are not alone. I'm well known for my salty language----which I try to control when I'm on the forum.

Don't forget... Some of the people are just starting out. In a "real shop" you could decide who to ask for help, and you soon learned who to avoid. But on this forum, everybody can take a shot at you. If you don't like newbies, give 'em a pass. SOMEBODY ELSE will answer them.

Thank you Harold.
We got a lot off topic yesterday. On many social forums it would have gotten simply nasty. Appreciate that the posts here were mostly gentlemanly but you were right to lock it up.

Thanks, Mike.
It's not easy being a moderator. There are times when someone must be denied an opinion, regardless of its veracity. I try to be fair and even handed. Hope it's coming across that way. We must keep the board on (or near) topic. I will always enforce the no religion, politics, bad language and no flaming mandate. It seems, to me, like the right thing to do. :wink:

My language is always good, even when it's bad. I am an ex-sailor, after all. :lol:

Totally entrapment to bring up O'Connor on a forum where you can't discuss politics.

Not everything said or spouted from the mouths of men require me to form a response. Sometimes silence says more than 10,000 words!
