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.

============================================================

Eric,
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")
Regards,
Dennis Miles
