Belfert is correct. And I am coming to the conclusion that I am paranoid.
But, just because I am paranoid doesn't mean that they aren't after me.
I took what you said as humorous ribbing, Guy.
If you were trying to be hurtful please retransmitt with more scathing comment.
Please! But only IF.
I got a flurry of emails after posting about the parts. Yours was one. The way this went was "post thread"....received a quick flurry of emails and PM's and I tied all that correspondence to the post
instead of parsing it out to the different modes,,,, in my mind
. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner with the good news that your part is waiting to be shipped as I was frantically looking in the wrong place and getting frustrated in the process. It is my wish that I disinvolve myself at the earliest but it seems that Keven isn't being approved by the moderators to post on the board just yet. Please pay special attention to the "SEEMS" qualifier as that seems to be escaping some moderators and others as a matter of fact. At this point I will get to Kevin about a price and then get back to you by email for address and such. Still involved and glad to be of assistance. I know how the God Father felt!
A couple weeks ago I was looking for a thread that I had posted in. There were two, in fact. I couldn't find them and I asked the board where they went and if they had been relocated or deleted. I expected them to be relocated full well so I searched all the other boards for them. Both Belfert and Nick responded quickly and informed me that the thread was on page 2 on their computer and gave me some direction. I looked for maybe the tenth time and low and behold, there it was right under my nose. I suspected that they had been trained by the same person that had trained my wife. Harrumph! "Thanks Guys" and off I went. A few minutes later I was looking for the second post in that same thread and I should have noted either of the posts had they been there in the first go-round but I was unable to locate that one either. Now I had been thru my first series of searches without success and then I did another search and found one but now the second was missing to me. Could I have my head up my @$# that far?
? Nah, figure the odds. I used to read the schematics that my men had laid out on the floor and I did it from ten feet away and I pointed out to them what they had overlooked in their trouble shooting effort. Tell them I could ever in a thousand years miss ANYTHING.
Well it has come down to that and Belfert (?) posted again with a comment such as "4 lines down from the first,John" or "it is there on the same page,John". I don't remember which was yours Belfert as I got emails about it. Need I reiterate my thanks to all?.
Paranoid about moderators? Well, there were posts deleted and there was no mention of who posted them initially. There were posts that the poster himself deleted with the assist of the moderator and again, no record. And, there were parts of posts that were removed and that wasn't documented either so that a reader could determine that he was not getting the full measure. I am on record as being supportive of the authority of the moderators and their discretion. I think the job is very tough and thankless in many ways and I have said so more than once. While I thought that mode of operation was "high handed" and not in keeping with their past activity, that also would be acceptable to me as I ain't running this show and I won't even think of accepting that job. Whatever the rules are I accept them but I would like to know what the rules are. Well, the moderator emailed back and said "My Bad". That's enuf for me. When I "thought", as in don't really know for sure, the last batch went missing, I felt really confused as I thought(that word again) that we weren't going back there. Turns out we didn't go there. So....."MY BAD!"
I am working up a complete answer to Dallas' post. Hope to finish that soon.
