If this is what the issue was, then consider this: Getting into a forum FOR the purpose of discussing a topic only to then rant and rag on that topic goes directly against forum rules and guidelines. Reality is, disliking a product is one thing. But disliking someone's choice of procedure, in an area that is perfectly legal, appropriate and upstanding in a community, is essentially an attack on that person's choices. INVARIABLY, when such things are "discussed" they devolve into personal attacks. This specific topic is identified in the forum rules, for this purpose.
