Because everyone knows that if you've been part of an online magic forum for four years you definitely know what you're talking about. Knowing what you're talking about has nothing at all to do with experience in the real world.
If you've taken anytime and read what TheCaffeinator has said, you would know that paddy is correct. Really though adjones, I think it's time you take a little break from the bird. Your posts are really becoming rude, negative, and they don't offer anything to the conversation. Maybe a little break would allow you to loosen up a bit.
I was being a smart-@ss, that's it. I know TheCaffeinator has great posts, and even though he's just a guy on a forum, I look up to him a lot. He's very helpful, and does in fact know what he's talking about. I was just pointing out that just because you've been part of a forum for x amount of time does not mean you know what you're talking about. I'm sorry if I insulted everyone... I look up to TheCaffeinator and Paddy both, I didn't mean to come off as rude. Being a smart-@ss is just in my nature, I guess. I apologize.
