Somewhere... out there...
LR and 'Deer?... out of respect for you both, as well as your expressed desire that I 'move on', I won't bother to further defend my position.
Those who know me, know where my heart is... and "I" know that my intentions were, and remain, true and sincere, and that my heart is in the right place... and I suppose that, ultimately, that's all that matters.
I do want you to know that none of my comments were intended to start a 'fight' with you, or to make an 'enemy' of you.
As I said earlier, I am not generally a confrontational person. I don't 'enjoy' confrontation, which is why, even when I do have strong feelings on the topic at hand, I tend to stay out of these types of discussions.
Contrary to what you may think, Brad, I do respect you... not only as a fellow human being, but I also have a great deal of respect for your apparent knowledge on a number of various topics. I have no doubt that there is much that I, and others, could learn from you. I'd simply like to be afforded that opportunity, void of the voice of condescension.
Anyway... I've already said more than I intended to say in this post.
Bottom line?... I hope we can move on from this with no hard feelings, but perhaps with a bit more of an understanding of and a mutual respect for one another... because, Brad?... we are ALL worth the time.
Peace, my friend.
