An expected post judging by your name. But the attack on another member was stooping a bit low, I agree he may not sound like much of a sweety but if
he brings facts with him its always worth a listen.
Frankly, this was no worse than some of Phage's posts, and though I wholly disagree with personal attacks on members altogether, I think it is, on
ocassion, necessary. Of course, it won't make the slightest bit of difference. Some people have no time for common courtesy or human decency, not on
a forum - here they can be the tough guys they desperately want to be in real life.
That said, though Phage can be short, a little sarcastic and sometimes slightly offensive, I have seen far far worse on this forum and I haven't seen
enough of him to say he lacks either of the above. Mostly, he seems to offer only the facts as he sees them and keeps personal comments to a minimum -
though, to me, even calling people fools for expressing an opinion is a little unfair.
Though I wonder about Phage at times myself, I appreciate his contributions to threads and his (most times) quick and to-the-point posts - though
posting here without bothering to check his facts was a little questionable.
My point, though off-topic and probably doomed to be deleted is I think we could all
stand to remember that a forum is for people to express
opinions and not for name-calling and so on.
Aaaanyway, something on topic...something on topic.....
Um, that's a real shiny planet there...?
Ooo ooooo, I can be on topic! It's an odd argument going on - the Sun is the only star in our solar system. Jupiter, mars, whatever else you're
arguing about...they're planets. It's a figure of speech to look up at all the white dots and call them stars. Most are, actually, but the planets
are just that.
