MAN I hate when folks cross post!
SpaGeek, please do us all a favor and read the forum Posting Guidelines. Why, I've even provided a way cool and super handy link to click on. click here
Hate is a strong word to use and I don't believe that you really mean it. If you do, so us all a favor and get a *real* life.
Ah, jeez, another bomb-thrower!
Look, pal, notice that you are listed at 5 posts in your whole five months on this forum, whereas Rick has logged 2901 posts in 17 months.
Hmmm... Whose life is real, here?
This forum's members are all RH users who are looking for help or to help, in addition to their regular jobs. Period. Cross posting and piggy-backing on threads only cause confusion to reign, particularly for those forum members who monitor several forum modules through email.
I am sorry for not following the rules. I admit I was wrong and I should not have cross posted.
Hate is a personal attack. I am reacting to this word, not the repremand. I am big enough to take the repremenad but are we not in the business of communicating? Use the right word. I believe that "irritated" may have been the better description of the feeling. Hate is not.
I don't roll over to the establishement and I demand respect. I am a 5-poster and he is a 2901. So what? Does that mean I don't deserve respect?
LOL, geez SpaGeek, I'm not sure how you managed to infer that my use of "hate" here constituted a personal attack. It certainly wasn't. I said: "MAN I hate when folks cross post!". Do I hate you personally? I have no clue, as I've never met you. However, had that been the case, it would have seemed odd to have tried to help in the other thread you posted.
My intent with the statement stands as is and I feel no public apolgy to you is necessary. I actually *do* hate (now read this next part carefully, as you seemed to totally space it off when you saw it the first time) when folks cross post. I hate it for the reasons cited both here in this thread and in the posting guidelines.
Additionally, before you take issue with the other bit where I asked you to do us a favor and read the guidelines, it is something I advise almost anyone on a regular basis that jumps in with a few cross posts. It only makes sense. It's not aimed at anyone in particular and is not meant to be demeaning in any way. It's just like reading the guidebooks before driving. The intent is to assist you in having the best forum experience by learning some unwritten or obscure rules and outlining what is and is not tolerated.
