I really can't understand the point snipping the substantive content which gave these lines context and then asking for a productive conversation.  Do you really believe these two lines are a fair representation of my participation? If so please let me know so I can place you on my ignore list (and suggest you do the reverse), so we can avoid any further acrimony. If no,t stop unfairly representing me by your edits to my messages.
