Pull your head in.
By your actions you've made a *very* strong statement that in this forum
that personal abuse is not only tolerated, it is preferred.
You had the opportunity to say something about an uncalled for personal
attack and you not only let it go, when I responded (yes it was
long])you then described what I wrote as 'a rant'.
Which again is demeaning and unnecessary. None too subtle personal attack.
As is 'this advice' - you are calling me an arsehole and uttering
threats. That's not subtle or 'helpful'.
Get over yourself.
Link is as Link does.
Don't write B/S like this. You're a fool, you don't need to compound
that into looking like hypocrite as well.
Oh, sarcasm isn't an attack? Gee Golly I guess the dictionary is wrong:
"A cutting, often ironic remark intended to wound."
But what would I know, I only rave and rant.
</sarcasm> Which apparently is the preferred LINK conversation style.
