Please start using the forum's quotation codes
I've hidden your message as originally presented and substituted a version using one of this forum's "quote box" coding methods. Please use such in your future messages - it makes for a much nicer reading format.

At your message, use the "peek" button to see the original formatting and the coding I used. You can also use the "peek" button to see the coding contained in any other forum message.

And/or see the quote box help info and the other coding info available on the same page. This page is also available via the "dbCodes On (help)" link that is found to the left of all text entry/editing boxes.

It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way. When everyone is prickly and argumentative and off-topic and personal then it's just too difficult to tell. We have neither infinite time to untie the Gordian knot, nor the wisdom of Solomon.

There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.

Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Source

Things don't seem to be totally off-topic, but there sure seems to be a lot of way-off-topic also being plugged into some messages.

People, how about more focus?

Topic terminally fragmented
The topic theme pops up here and there, but a lot of the discussion is way off-topic, and perhaps deserves a topic of its own.

Time for a refocusing. Closing topic, more or less in about 15 minutes.
