A lot to unpack there. Much of it ad hom and condescension - its kind of a distraction from the thread. Going to suggest we split off about 2/3ds of it into its own thread, with an appropriate subject header, perhaps 'Tiassas feelings about Dave' or something. My first post to that thread will likely be something to the effect of 'How long have you been holding on to that!?' Meanwhile, you owe me some time to sift the signal from the noise and compose responses to the topical bits. While you're waiting, be sure to read billvon's contributions, as he seems to be having no trouble with comprehension.
