    Then I'll add my distaste for the title to the scrum. It's an interesting device, but the title is childish and unfit for the forum BY THE WORDS OF THE FORUM OWNER.

    There, is that enough? Clear, concise thread topics are much easier to search, and will do the job of getting views. No need to piddle on the keyboard...

    To the moonlight machine. I can call the post as I want and the question is clearly stated in the title. No need to use rude language on this forum. Verbal abuse has been reported. Hopefully, the actions will follow soon. Next time, be polite to people and watch your language.

    There, is that enough?.
    That is somewhat misleading. What I actually posted was Bottom line is we need members to simply tell us in advance enough info to at least get a hint of what the topic is about.

    Seeing as he did at least “hint” what the topic is about, it’s ok by me. Chill pill is in order m’man.

    I didn't know Ford made lathes. I do know they made B-24 Liberators during WWII, which they used to drop Pintos on the Hun to great effect.

    Wait, wouldn't you guys have dropped Anglias? Besides, now that I think of it, dropping Pintos on countries would be a violation of the Geneva Mechanism.
