MeFi post as callout

I think starting a new front-page thread just to
call another user out
is going too far, especially when said user
to take it to e-mail.

It having been me, I must, alas, say "thanks, but I don't mind." I was trying to avoid topic drift. *I* didn't really think it merited a thread, but I don't object to it getting one.
I mean, some other people who weren't happy about me were real *shits* about it. cCranium wasn't, I don't think.

Calling baylink out was most definetely not my intention, and I heartily apologize for giving the impression I was attacking baylink, it wasn't my intent.
I wanted to debate the merits (if any) of Microsoft's software development, and it wasn't a part of the thread baylink originally posted to. Therefore, I created a new thread.
Baylink's "This is off-topic" comment was almost certainly a bit tongue-in-cheek, but it was also true, and I love getting other developers' and other users' takes on Microsoft's products, because I myself am constantly using them.
Again, I apologize if any thought I was attacking baylink, that most definetely was not my intent.

Well, I'm sure
probably would have appreciated a link to site there, though. :0)
I've had this place used against me once, and it wasn't fun.
You're both pretty good guys, and Baylink takes more shit here than I know *I* ever would...
Well, if you two kids promise to play nice, and shake hands... we can chalk this up as "no harm, no foul", huh?

Hell, I respect baylink more than most of the people on this board. He's a smart feller, and his views and opinions are awfully similar to my own.
Well, most of the time.
It honestly wasn't intended as a slight, I was just trying to preserve thread integrity.
(Cap'n, this threads at 90% off-topic! She canna take much morea this!)

I may *take* more shit, Eric, but it's probably because I *start* more shit, too. ;-)
(The ploy didn't work, BTW: no hits at all. :-()

Stop worrying about your counter, dude...
Do that "linky-love" stuff... meta blogging works like a charm! :0)
