You just don't get it here. It isn't anything about whether you know or don't know the risks. Other people that read the thread may be hearing about the risks for the very first time because you brought it up.What I actually said was that I already understood that some folks would object and I knew their objections and personally did not agree so it was a moot point in this particular case. I understand now that this is a group that feels the legitimate need to reply with rose objections again because of their professional roles.
I actually have a thread like that and I think we have had some interesting talking happen I there. I mistakenly thought this what a tiny side thought and seriously didn't mean for it derail this thread.
Speeding of that can we just stop right here? I get it ok. I clearly am cut from a different cloth than many of you and my conversational posting style rubs many of you the wrong way. While I'm not suddenly going to become something different and easier to swallow, I will strive to remember to whom I'm talking to in future post.
And since we can assume I'm not an mind worth trying to change on this particular, non life or death, subject; let's all agree we have better things to talk about.
Nobody thought YOU really needed to know this information. We all say your other thread, which was a great discussion, and we know you know. But it still had to be said, just in case.
Furthermore, the post that set you off didn't even address the safety of your idea. It just wondered it it was worth buying such an expensive seat when you would need to modify it right out of the box.
Your original post of the idea wasn't controversial, your rage and comment about being on hidden camera was. You had a legitimate idea. Someone else had a legitimate question regarding your thought process. There was nothing about the question that was ludicrous enough that the only reasonable explanation was that we were having you on.
We don't want an apology for coming up with an idea. There's no need for one. An apology for your snarky remarks, or even an admittance to them other than saying some *might* have come from you would go a long way in this situation though.
I don't assume you are a mind not worth changing. I don't even think your mind needs changing for questioning the party line. I like it when people question and think critically. Just...think about how you will handle people taking the opposite point of view and keep it civil.
