    The danger on commenting on threads.

    l would suggest that anyone commenting at least have read the entire thread before posting a comment, observation or analysis. I have more than once ignored this, lets say numerous times done just that and it hurts all the way around, because something comes out of the blue at a responding poster after the initial post where a bit of reflection would cancel that and is not meant in the way it would be taken. Your words are all you have on the web site. Make them useful and positive, and when some people don't know how they turn, well, sometimes I am not as polite as RTFS, but after commenting on other subjects, the wording is also important, as I have obviously ignored. I stand asking to be forgiven for my sharpness and indiscretions. This site is wonderful with great and talented folks like Gerry etc. It also allows idiots like me to participate. Have a happy riding day tomorrow! And the next and the next and the next!!

    He has a good point in general. Too often, both here and on other forums, I'll start a thread. The first half dozen or so responses are good, but the longer it gets, the more likely people will chime in without having read the thread, and you can tell, because if they had at least read your own first post, they wouldn't have said what they said.

    Then there are those who will come along and rip you a new one for making a statement or asking a question (not referring to this site, but to other sites)... saying things they would NEVER dare say to your face, even without any expletives. I had this happen to me a few days ago on Google Plus. I had had enough of it and deleted my entire Google Plus account. I almost never posted there anyway, so good riddance.

    Forums are not a good place for those who are sensitive or of fragile character. Ya need to roll with the terrain and not take much personally.

    What sacrilege Troll, he is admitting his deviancy right in front of us. The OP will of course ignore such ignomious intrusions on his format.

    WHAT? You don't read every single post in a thread before posting? You obviously are not wasting enough time on the internet! Lessee, 5 to 7 hours a week, five years, is 1,300 to 1,800 hours! Lord, forgive me for I know not what I do.

    And I only have some 1,480 posts.....think of how much time somebody like Fred or Admiral has wasted! Or not.
