First off, Good stuff RICK...
You preach it brother!!
Second, I have created and ADMINed 5 very active forum communities before. Young and old alike were all members by the thousands, just like here. 'bmudd14474' speaks the truth when he says it is hard at times to tell the intention and tone of someone's post sometimes. Obviously Rick knows this case was blatant and there was no question about the intent. But these forum communities can be real tricky to some of us who read what others post and fail to understand someone else's sense of humor, or joking manners.
Some of us are much better at the 'written word' than others, which doesn't mean lesser shouldn't contribute, like Rick said also, it sometimes means the greater ones tolerate the lesser talented with probably the benefit of the doubt.
