Mine is to share any knowledge that I "might" have to offer and to learn others opinions. I'm not here to "DISARM" someone elses opinion, as it is just that, their opinion. If I can make a point to correct them that is factual then I will (as I think Flux did), but I wouldn't embarass them (which I think you did).
Also with all due respect to Flux or any other member with 2000+ posts, anyone can get on here and type all week to get to that total.
Being a ROOKIE as you call it does not mean that these people do not know what they are talking about. It simply means that they have not posted enough to warrant a higher status.
BTW the number of times i have had this conversation is ridiculous. no offense. It just always seems to happen.
New member defending their intelligence. DON'T TELL ME SHOW ME.
I am not trying to insult the intelligence of new cafe members. That would be ignorant and hypocrytical of myself. i was once a new member and considered myself to be knowledgable. Much like you appear to be.
Yes you can sit here all week and accumulate that total...the proof is in the pudding...just becuase the total is high doesn't automatically make you a genius...
When you evaluate FLUX's statement and consider his So-called status in this forum. Do you think he pulled this out of his ass. How would you attribute his argumentative style or skill. I believe practice. Not only that consistency. I have seen his posts over and over again. And he is very well versed in providing evidence to back up an opinion.
If another owner with 2000+ posts makes and judge mental or emotional statement with out reinforcement i brush it off. water of my back. Your opinions are useless with a leg to stand on. No matter how many posts you have.
I'll tell you this much though. IF you have 2000+ posts and make a simple statement without evidence to support. i am more likely to trust you compared to somebody who has 50 posts.
Wait and see you will figure out that most the members in here with at least 1000-1500 posts are more reliable than your passers-by who come and go.
BTW if i choose to embarass,congratulate, ridicule, or anything else that i choose to do. Thats my personalty. I am more than likely not gonna adjust my attitude because a random poster is offended by my harsh writing style. You may not like it and you can openly defend yourself as you are now if i ever demean you.
Nice speaking to you. And you will soon learn that their are some people who are not as reasonable as i am.
