You take that back! It's not my fault I post a compliment and people choose to read some ulterior motive behind the thread. The man made a promise and he kept it. Nothing more, nothing less. I'm trying to not be a nattering nabob of negativism, here.

I considered that before hitting submit reply. After reflection I should have included the phrase ‘the thread has become’ somewhere in my response.

However innocent and sincere your intent the thread was ultimately doomed.

Did I bold the last paragraph? Well, did I? Let's have a look, shall we?

Hmm. I COULD have called attention to this one negative part of the story buried all the way down at the bottom...

BUT I DIDN'T, DID I?

I have no idea about that other question. You'll have to check with mcbear or Jetjok about the flight characteristics of the Gulfstream 500 during energetic human copulation.

Your statement is as ridiculous as someone blaming the latest GM CEO for the upcoming GM bankruptcy filing.
