I think the problem is that it's the internet and what you read or write can be easily misconstued unless you presonally know the author of the post.
I really think that people need to take a deep breath and realize first and foremost that no one's attacking anyone here. We're all adults, I hope, and this is merely an exchange of opinions, friendly suggestions and constructive criticism.
Ya' gotta take what is written here with a grain of salt especially when the drama ensues.
Everyone has a right to their opinion and point of view, you can either take it or leave it but the botton line is respect for the other individual and that is what they belive in.
There's been a lot of foot in hand disease on here lately especially when the subject of leading, gear and crashes comes up. Everyone responds based on their own personal experiences at the present time and while something may closely relate to your latest situation, it's probably not necessarily directed at you personally.
It's just that a lot of individuals care about others here and with the # of incidences this year, they just don't want to see anyone else get hurt.
So before anyone thinks any one thread is directed at them, take a deep breath, put both hands on the computer table, push yourself away and get up and go do something else and comeback to it later. I guarantee that you won't add to the drama because of your own individual initial knee-jerk reaction.
I've had to do it a number of times, so I should know
