    I have also noticed the odd gibe here and there.

    It has made me cautious about posting.

    Hi Sharon please don't worry about posting, it does seems to be the norm on forums. Also, when people are typing away they are just looking at a screen, often with a user name and that other poster isn't in front of them so they can and have done so in the past written some nasty and personal things. Its best just to ignore these people , they're the ones with the problem, not you :wink: Take care best wishes RRB

    If the person making the statement has an effect on how you CHOOSE to take the statement, then there's a word for that, RRB.

    Actually that is basic human psychology - it takes ten positive statements to counteract 1 negative statement.
