Scott, I wasn't rolling my eyes at Jay. (but you knew that) Sorry, I should know better by now. I get in trouble with my wife every time I do it after she says something ridiculous.
I didn't know Jay had a meltdown. The only meltdown I saw was in the one, single post that was deleted from the thread.(but you knew that) Anyone following the thread at the time knows what really happened.
As far as emoticons go, they are there for a reason, which is not to belittle, but to convey a feeling without putting it to word. I used
to imply that there was more to say on the subject that might be better left unsaid. Perhaps the winky guy would have been better?
Sorry, Scott. I totally respect your intelligence, knowledge and passion. I just think you need to learn when to quit once you've made your point.
