When I saw you chastised by another poster for doing almost exactly what you scolded me for 24 hours ago, I saw the irony and couldn't resist. There definitely is a double standard here, and apparently only you can decide when to enforce the rules and when to bend them. I don't mean to pick a fight. You are a regular and valuable contributor to this group while I mostly lurk and learn. It's just when you climb so high on that self-appointed moderator's soapbox, you shouldn't be surprised that the slightest wind can tip it over. When Grunff followed the complaint about your spam quote with a complaint about top-posting, it made the whole thread seem too petty to merit further discussion.
