It's important to understand that this conversation is not moderation. I don't want anything. I was very careful not to be critical of you in any way whatsovever. Questions are fine. I'm not commenting about questions. Opinions are fine. Epic values a diversity of opinions. Disagreements are thus to be expected. You asked what I meant with the quote and why I chose to depart this thread.
When someone I respect makes an obvious bonehead error, my first reaction is to assume that I don't have the facts right. When the facts are verfiied, the next thing I do is to attempt to discuss the issue quietly to avoid an embarassing scene caused by me either still not having all the facts right or that the person I respect has made a bonehead error. I have not asked you to do the same. Epic does not require this. This is what I choose to do because I've been taught that this is a common social courtesy. There are many high level pros who do not participate in online forums precisely because such courtesy is often lacking in Internet forums. Still, there are some highly skilled and experienced professionals in this community who are here and deserve such respect. Whether I am part of that group or not, it is my choice not to continue conversations with people who choose first to assume that what I am saying is wrong. This is my choice as a member of this community, not as a moderator.
You asked why I felt I deserved any trust. My credentials and my posting history are freely available and in this case not necessary. My post was accurate and fully explained. I did my home work to make sure I used the right words before I posted, I fully backed up a technical term with plain English to clearly establish my intent and then I checked again after you said I was incorrect. Regardless of who made the post, you did not do your homework to make sure that you were right before you criticized it. I did not say that I deserved any trust. But there are a lot of people here who do trust me. Go figure.
Please feel free to continue on. You'll do fine without me.
