I just feel so relieved that charles has taken on the role of "Avatar Policeman". As soon as he forwards us Volumes 1 through 3 of the Official Avatar Guidelines we can all work on getting into compliance. ;)

But I will say that even though he's a pompous gas-bag, it's good to know that there are still people like him who have enough free time to micro-manage everyone else's life.

I made up seven avatars for the site.  I have them zipped up and ready for delivery but where do I send them.  I will make more from time to time if it helps.

I come to this site for information, and YES to 'bond' with others who are understanding of my plight. I do not plan to put anyone down, and I am aggrivated that anyone is attacking others on this site. Everyone has a right to their opinion. You are all correct, if you do not like what someone has to say simply IGNORE them, as I am doing.
Brent is a big boy, if he wishes to interact with this --ummmm-- person that is his right as he is the one being attacked.
I have stated my support of Brent, and I hope that is enough for him.

I am now going to ignore any further post from said named (moron) I mean Sparc ID of Charles.

Good, I'd hate to think that anyone would post to your approval.

Is this your BS way of saying, Ok, Im full of shit and you guys called me on it?

Amen to that. Good, God forbid you should actually see yourself as you are.

No, as my old English teacher would put it, you sir, are entirely too wordy. While you may not believe it, it is possible to exchange ideas without writing an entire book.

What you refer to is the scientific method. See? simple to say. Another time, I'll debate treacherous paths.....remember Hiroshima? What I count on is common sense, unfortunately, it cant be taught.

Yes, you are presumptuous, and pompous.

I see, we got our favorite dictionary out again didn't we Charles? Put it away, it's not doing you any good. Good lord man,, come down out of the clouds.

So you are leaving? Thank you.
