Oh boy... I didn't know that Wheels departed over such a small thing. He said he didn't mean it that way, so I believed him and thought nothing more of it.
I assumed it was just a cultural thing and/or a "Kiwi English
vs. American English" misunderstanding.
Wheels, it's not a big deal. I didn't read the rest of that thread thanks to all the jerks posting
on it, but your post was certainly not anything to get worried about.
Don't listen to all those hotheads in that thread who took it so far from the original question - a question posed by me to verify some local anger over the situation.
If I'm not worried about the "stupidest post ever" comment, then you shouldn't be either.
Your comments and contributions are greatly needed here. I've benefited a lot from your insight.
But.. alas... we all need a break from here from time to time. My wife laughs at this forum, saying it's like a bunch of old ladies gossiping and getting into fights playing Majong.
So, I do understand your need for a break. Come back when you are ready.
