Exactly what is the purpose of your negative comment ??? WHo benefits. Thanks, Dave.
Hi Dave, what is the purpose of YOUR negative comment except to call someone out for chastisement. Feel better now? If you donít like somebodyís post you may ignore it. Alternatively you can be understanding of their frustration and offer help in the form of a solution. Your reply to his post was even less useful if you stop and think about it. Too much condescension and not enough understanding in this forum. Prickly crowd.

Content deleted by tenders. A forum where management/moderators repeatedly quash and delete well-intentioned, constructive concerns about governance issues raised by multiple users does not deserve my participation.

First of all, the original comment was made in June 2011 so everyone is pretty much over it by now.

Second, the root of the issue is that Dave interpreted Bestbuyguy21ís statement incorrectly. Bestbuyguy21 didnít mean to taunt, ďSO WHAT if you stripped your screws...Ē as Capdave417 read it. He meant ďSo, what if you stripped your screws...Ē indicating that he had done so and would be unable to easily get access to the jets to upgrade them.

Thirdly, youíre correct that there is a lot of condescension on this forum. The worst of it is concentrated in the hands of a few, exacerbated significantly by their anonymity and lack of accountability. Iím still deciding if the preponderance of excellence is worth the indignity.
DOH! and DOH! and yep

Also, as #2 reminds us punctuation matters.

For example:

Letís eat, Grandma! vs Letís eat Grandma!
