Yes I am forward about the subject, and I know of some terrible things that have happened around here and why there is a need for rules. My commentary on this is objective. I'm not wavering from my stance, have been here for a long time and I know what I am talking about.
If you'd like insight to further details that would be inappropriate for me to disclose, you can attempt to ask CH directly about it, which they will if they see fit to.
If I come across as defensive I apologize. It's more a mixture of astonishment, passion, confusion, annnnnnd...frustration? But not at anyone particularly (not even CH as a whole). I suppose I feel a bit angry at myself because I feel like I could be explaining this better, but I'm unsure how to, and so I get excitable in the sense that I'm not aiming to prove anyone wrong per se, but nothing is necessarily being explained in a way that could be taken as, "ohhhhhh THATS why....okay cool no questions here!"
So I constantly have more questions and more statements to back up my stance hoping to get deeper and deeper into the root of a subject it seems I'm not allowed to pick at, which is saddening to me, because I want to understand it better.

This is a forum and posting for a while, until we really know you and you gain tenureship, isn't that big of a deal. It will fly by before you know it.
Noted. As you suggested above I'll email the help desk with further questions. My business or not, it's worth a shot right? Better than being in the dark about things without making any attempts at all.
It really wasn't malicious. Most of what I said were questions and statements to counter your own, and I don't feel as if I approached you specifically any differently than I would have Darkwing or whoever else responded. If anything I approached you a lot more bluntly but that's only because you gave me the same courtesy. I catch onto things so I tried to mimick the feel. Perhaps I was wrong in my assessment of your response and thus responded innaprppriately and if that's the case....Noctua wrote: Your response to me was unnecessarily snarky and disrespectful. I was giving you helpful suggestions and advice, and you came back at me rudely. Chill out.
I genuinely am sorry.
You didn't deserve that.
