Well said, des.
For the record, I don't care about my
points total for my sake. I didn't have that many to begin with and I am sure Brian has plenty of work to keep him busy but eventualy the points will come back. But I do feel that it does help new users judge credibility of advice. Not that people without points can't give good advice. I am sure that there may be many members here who have been smoking up some good Q for years before they discovered this forum and I would not discount their advice because they don't have green tiles by their name. I feel it is a useful tool but by no means the only tool.
One more thing . . . azrocker and I have made up via PM but, if I say something that offends someone or you just think I am being an (insert term of choice here
) feel free to let me know. My goal here is to help but at times I may be faster at typing than thinking.
Okay, I'll drop it now.
