I agree with aspects of what both of you say. However, I can NOT help but feel that a LOT of this argument rests on misunderstandings. Andreas misunderstands a lot of people & we misunderstand him a lot of the time, if we even bother trying to understand him in the 1st place. D is not used to Andreas, like the rest of us are.... & it is VERY weird for civilized folk to meet someone who automatically insults people without even knowing them.
I like this forum a LOT, but there are some people, outsiders, who I would be a bit ashamed to show this forum to because of some of the exchanges that take place on this forum. Not only are those exchanges a waste of space, time, & energy for all parties involved, but they are a bit off-putting, esp. for strangers or beginners who don't know the forum posters so well or how to ignore, navigate, etc. the posts. This doesn't mean that we have to force anyone to act in any way, BUT we should remember that our posts represent us in some way.... every part of us that we choose to show. & it may appear that the insults are made out of knowledge, when in fact, many of these insults arise BECAUSE we don't know each other so well.
Just my thoughts, you jerk. : ) Just kidding. : )
