You hit the wrong button, okay it happens, you edited this OP to apologize which means you know how and are able to edit your posts, so why did you
create more work for the mods by asking that this one be deleted and starting another thread when you could have just edited in what you wanted to
Because I did it on a phone and hadn't even written anything yet. By the time I was done updating the content I would have had a bunch of posts
asking me where the content was. But you came in with your two cents anyway so I guess your proving me wrong. I was wasting everyone's time.
Or at least yours and mine.

I get that you wanted a "clean" thread without the impatient people making comments. I don't like having to read them either but they are usually
newbees that don't know a blank thread means the wrong button was pushed(ie enter from the title line or the submit button), people that don't
think, before posting, that it was a mistake, or trolls trying to get their daily quota of stupid posts(unfortunately we may never get away from this
type of immature behavior). When I posted my above reply, not only was the new thread in place, but this one had been edited and as you notice there
was only one post between your OP and mine So you didn't get hit hard at all with the "where's the post" people.
In the case of Newbees posting to a blank thread it is a learning experience about what happened when it is explained to them. In the case of the rest
it just tells you what people to ignore because chances are their opinion is usually worthless anyway.
My question was a genuine one and was not meant to be rude but was meant to help you to understand that it is an easy fix without making extra work
for the mods. This thread was either missed by the mods or was not alerted as a delete thread, which, in this case, is good as I can take the
opportunity to reply. By the way you responded to my question, it is obvious you have had issues with trolls in the past and that is unfortunate.
Maybe I used words that you took as an attack or were rude, I assure you this was not the case and I apologize if I cam across this way.
You will come to the understanding of what I am saying with more time on this site and the frustrations(although my post was not out of frustration at
all) that come with trolls, duplicate threads, etc. My post was to help you to understand, for future posts, that what you did was like starting a
paper in a local library, deciding to start over, crumpling up your paper and leaving it on the table for someone else to throw away. It was a
question to help in learning the ins and outs of this site and what gives the mods extra work not to be a jerk or a troll.
