Pardon me for appearing to be harsh, but the point of the original post was for tallone to show off how he had put a boor in his place. He posted it in a forum that is meant to show how boorish behaviour is shut down and swiftly. I believe he expected accolades or at least a "well done", for his actions.
I found his pride in that action to be quite a bit misplaced and stated why I felt that way. I thought an etiquette forum wasn't just to give each other pats on the back or talk about how wrong the rest of the world is, but was also a place to learn about our own shortcomings. I know I've learned a lot from this forum.
I follow the board and, without the intention to mommyjack, I do have a new baby at home and don't get a chance to post as often as I used to. So pardon me for not appearing to be as timely as you would like. The thread was at the top of the page so I thought it was still a live subject. I wasn't aware that we weren't allowed to post to topics that are more than a week or two old. The moderators hadn't set rules about that previously, so if you are now I would like to know..
