Your attitude is itself offputting, it seems you think criticsm of anothers efforts raises your stature, it doesn't.
I think if you re-read the my post, you will find that it is diplomatically stated - that I accept that what I dislike is something that others like quite well. I accept that. I think we all should. My main point is that this site has a lot of content, and it is highly unlikely that there is even one member who likes every single topic posted
I love my wife, but she isn't perfect - I love her and so accept the good with the bad.....and in this sense that is not dissimilar to how I feel about this site - overall I love to be here, but are there some things I could do without? Absolutely. But I will accept the bad (hate speech, obscenity, and spam excepted, naturally) with the good because I love the website.
So ultimately, I am puzzled as to why you feel I have an attitude problem, and even moreso as to why you didn't make the same accusation of the poster I agreed with? Do we all have to like your posts, or we (in your eyes) have an attitude? Sounds kinda silly and childish to me.
And as for stature? I am a poster here - nothing more, nothing less. If anyone (outside of the mods and admins) has stature here, it is the paid Insiders, and I am not an Insider. Aside from that, I have the same rights and responsibilities you do, or any other non-admin-or-mod poster has. So I don't understand your comments relating to 'stature', as it is irrelevant in the context of these forums.
and finally, regarding:
on the current page I have started 8 topics with 6283 reads and 188 responses, what have you added?
Honestly, I didn't know that there was a competition going on......I didn't get a notification. You win, or at least you beat me? np -- I'm OK with that, I don't come here to compete with anyone. But I do have a question - it would appear by your statement that this competition is based on quantity of posts and responses, but is quality also included in the measure? I just want to know how this competition is judged, should I decide to try to jump in late and try to overtake you despite your commanding lead.
