I think by now, people have lost track of who has posted what.
I don't really care what the responses were. It is just
that Teddy got all flamey about the original poster telling
someone that their response was not helpful. Seems like he
likes to dish it out but isn't as big on lunching on his
Of course, my post was almost as off-topic as Teddy's, but
it did apply to a comment made by the original poster.

I haven't asked anyone to prove anything. What you say may be true.
So what. The original poster just said it is irrelevant to the
question asked. Seemed to take a little offense too that seemed a
little excessively touchy, but that's his business.
