    On a similar note, what is also troubling is when someone asks for what is in effect legal advice and it is provided by a member who knows what they are talking about, and then someone else, who hasn't bothered to read all the prior posts in the thread, states something like:"Well, I am not a lawyer, but here is what I think," and it is completly wrong information.

    Maybe some of us will become better posters because of this. I know it will be on my mind for at least a couple weeks. At least I usually post topics in the correct forum or try to.

    I know I'm guilty of it to.

    IHO alot of people do it, to reduce their own personal liability by practicing law via the internet, and to also try to give the reasonable man approach to a law rather than giving no advice at all.

    That's just mean...

    I tried. Off topic or Forum comments. I flipped a coin. If I would of put it in Off topic, the Gestapo Mods would have moved it to Forum comments...It was a no win situation.

    And Ron, that is exactly why I started my rant...

    It was not intended to be taken the way you did--obviously. I'd apologize if that was the case. Please don't read more into it than there is.

    I try not to post unless: I know what I'm talking about-few posts here-, Believe in what I'm talking about -a few here-, Asking a question-a whole mess of them here LOL-, or has to do with humor - not that every one gets my humor-.

    hmm come to think of it that's prob why my post count is so low

    The older Mary Ann gets, the more she looks like Mrs. Howell.

    Well, I don't know about your states, but in Texas we thought Ginger was cuter than Mary Ann.

    Mods,
    I know this thread is becoming off topic..yeah, the irony is hillarious...but I would appreciate it if you leave it open until it has run it's course. If this thread allows people to say stupid things instead of saying them in other people's posts with real issues, I'm all for it. And sometimes people just want to say something silly...

    and I was kidding about Ginger...I always thought Mary Ann was much hotter.
