Since I was one of those that made a comment, and I clearly stated with my apologies for my comments being taken the wrong way, I can say that my comments were taken the wrong way.

It's a common failing of emails and texts without being able to hear the inflections in a voice and see the expression on a face. 
This is just proof positive I have not perfected my ability to convey those things in the printed word!!! Hence why my great novel remains unwritten!!

Please, accept my apologies for helping run this thread off topic, I honestly had no such intention.
Tony
