You may want to read the posts.


Instead of cherry-picking.

You're misusing the term as many do. Yes it's commonly misused; doesn't make it correct.

If you're so perfectionistic that the discrepancy cited in your OP bothers you, I'd surmise you'd be uncomfortable misusing terminology.

Yeah, everyone is misusing it.


It's quite commonplace.


And it's anal, like it or not.

Oh, I get it. You've never had a problem with IRS, and by gawd, no one dare criticize the agency.

Lemme put it this way: If the amt. had been in my favor and considerably higher than 6 cents in my favor, I'd still beef about their, for want of a better term, "double-standard," namely, the taxpayer has to round-off when filing online while the IRS does not. I prefer the IRS way; hence, I always did paper filing before this year.


But hey, it ain't driving me nuts. Life tragedies like a wife who went thru 3.5 years of hell with non-Alzheimer's dementia and a best buddy for 66 years, a non-smoker, who died from pulmonary carcinoma two days before this past Xmas came closer to driving me nuts.


So don't let my petty annoyances and gripes drive YOU nuts.

Should've pointed-out that the State also requires rounding for online filing but they are, at least consistent, by rounding when they check your figures.

You keep implying your comments are having some big impact on the emotional state of others, but I suspect you are greatly exaggerating how much anyone really gives a ****. It's a thread on a message board so people have opinions and give them, it doesn't mean any response you don't like is an indicator of others getting upset or stressed out over your bizarre behavior.

Just don't want you folks to elevate your BP on my account.


If that happened, I'd feel so guilty as to be unable to sleep.

Why did you bring up a topic in an online forum if you're too thin skinned to take any criticism?
