Jerry.Yes - you could have just posted your thoughts on an addon for instance. Or perhaps made some mild comments about the state of our wonderful hobby, or the world in general. Something non-confrontational that people could have read and enjoyed without feeling the need to charge in with all guns blazing.Here are some examples for next time:1. The PMDG 747 is seriously flawed2. I wish Microsoft would hurry up and bring out a new version of FS3. Airbus make much better aircraft than Boeing4. I reckon I could land an airliner with an incapacitated crew5. Payware addons are becoming too expensiveIan:-) :-)

He could've buried a post like that in any other forum that you would not have taken issue with but didn't; big deal. Don't give it a thought, Jerry. Just bury a bone like that somewhere other than where sleeping (junkyard?) dogs lie...

For goodness sake Rick.IT'S A JOKE!!!!I should have posted an explanatory note:"The above post is of course made in jest. It is based on the concept of irony - which is to express meaning through language that normally signifies the opposite, usually for humorous effect."Thus, I suggested that the original poster chose a "non-confrontational" subject of conversation, just so that I could then supply him with examples of topics which in the past have engendered spirited debate and pointed comments, sometimes of a highly confrontational nature...The juxtaposition of these contentious issues with advice to post a benign comment was intended to bring a wry smile to the faces of regular visitors to this forum.With the kindest regardsIan :-roll

If you are just posting "to stay active", then you are not active.Chris Low.

Please don't infer through your verbose response that I am ignorant of the concept of irony. If anything, use that hatrack of yours to employ a little forum etiquette and include the "no harm, no foul" smiley (as you did above). That way, you won't garner such inerudite or heathenistic comments from a lowbrow such as me. My sympathy to your being thin-skinned. Good luck with that...Kinder regards,:*

Well, at the risk of keeping this non-active thread "active", I read these forums several times a week. However, I'm a very in-frequent poster. I'm not always sure when was the last time I replied and/or posted a new thread. So, just to be safe, I post once every 3 months.Sure, I could have posted a reply to any thread and "buried it" I suppose. Maybe, next time, I just reply to a post in the screenshtos forum saying - nice job, or something.Sorry for causing trouble.JerryG

Jerry,Please accept my apologies for the somewhat hasty comment that I made. I was obviously not thinking clearly, since it is pretty obvious with hindsight that a member can be actively engaged in READING stuff at this site without ever actually responding to it.Sorry about that.Chris Low.

Only here (I am now of course included) could such a harmless, insignificant and dry post be put into such color. Only here. Good or bad, who knows?! It is just a fact. I think it is hilarious! :-beerchug
