To identify the skill level of the individual who replied. Wasn't I clear?

I don't remember anyone saying they were trying to fingerpoint.

Obviously you and I took the op completely different. I could care less
about pointing a finger. It is Alpha software - stuff happens. I fixed
mine just fine, even without the help. My mistake, I didn't realize folks
were still arguing about "the incident".
Actually I wondered why a new thread wasn't created for the op
question. Now I know - it apparently is the same thread.
I wasn't involved in the original discussion and choose not to comment
on it. However, if this is a new thread, I stand on my suggestion. Yes,
I would like to know the quality of a reply and I would base it on my
above stated criteria.
Sorry for the misunderstanding. I will butt out and allow you folks to
return to the argument.
