Subject: Re: [EVDL] Hijacked Thread
To: [email protected]

Please change the name of this thread if you are going to hijack it. I'd
rather not have my original thread associated with this discussion.


Fortunately the (EVDL) is not your property. And you do not own a
"Thread". There was no impropriety in the discussion below, In fact if you
read the earliest posts the longer discussion was a result of my defending
your request for responses. I was one of your first responses and I gave you
a positive reply. Then others asked me to respond and I did so , clearly and
concisely, and again with no negative comments only encouragement.
To minimize the likelihood of being Hijacked in the future simply be
more interesting and don't give others a reason to change to a more
interesting topic. (Or be a little more "Thick Skinned" and don't go off
into a rage, or others will jump your Thread for their "FUN")
