Just based on the quote, I knew who you were talking about without having to click the link. He/She pulled the same stunt with me in Computer Help Please?. His/Her other post in that same thread isn't worth anything either; just another dismissal declaring it all not worth his/her effort.

But Tangle seems intent on pushing his own agenda (discussion of the third world) in a topic that is specifically about discussion of the first world, and is now serial posting assertions that he is on topic and it's just wasting space. As if it weren't bad enough that he's refusing to offer evidence for his position or even relate anything he says to the topic.
If he wants to discuss the third world, he should start a separate thread.

The limitation of the wood worktop to the island and the general color scheme makes this one, in my opinion, closer to ideal:
I have more to say, but I'll wait till the thread is promoted.
