Just an observation...had to smile for a while in the midst of a contentious thread some look for alies and gravitate to them and then almost in puppy dog style follow them on every post to agree or defend any one that slights them. The ones that amaze me are the ones who just want to please everyone all the time, always apologetic......I feel like if I crept up behind them and went; BOO, they'd crap their pants. It's ok folks just relax and be human and not so phony.

Anyone notice the way people interact, the politics etc on forums? It's the reason I gave up on working in an office for other people.....

See y'all in a couple of days I'm on the road come sunrise. I'll be in the land of flat caps and dumb northerners

Well, I'm just one of those dumb northerners so I'm not sure what my input is worth but I don't think people regress. I think they never left they playground in the first place. But what do I know?

It's funny that you used the word 'regress'.... it was polite of you because it implies that there was some growth!
