Grunff, I hear you. I'm not trying to do anything negative as I mentioned. If I can continue with your example, I'm the nice guy buying a "round of beers" for everyone in the bar. I don't know why the people in the bar would reject that, so why would anyone reject in providing some great Saab videos from my hard work for everyone else to enjoy? I don't get anything out of it, just the satisfaction of making people happy. SaabGuy On Tue, 03 May 2005 18:06:19 +0100 Grunff <> wrote: > Saab Guy wrote: > > I am sorry for bothering everyone. I just wanted people to become aware of the Videos I created for us to all share and enjoy with each other. When I posted the message, I didn't realize that someone would take that act of kindness in any negative way, so I'm surprised. > > Saab Guy - I must say I'm a little torn; can't decide if you're trying > to annoy people or genuinely don't understand.
