Ok, so as it turns out that was not my "final word"...it's not the content 
of the posts, it's the tone and judgment that offend me.  You may have 
certain ideas; others may not share the same thoughts.  Your tone is 
contentious, and imperious, your way or the highway.   That offends me. 
Share your ideas by all means, but do not insist that I agree with you. 
Present your ideas as a thought or an option not a decree that everyone must 
follow...Wow, that might make a better impact than arguing and judging. 
Imagine that...
