If you skip the line I was responding on,
such conversation is not very useful, Rudy.
You mean, this line "But I have to ask, what part of the quoted message did
you reply to ?"
Pray tell, how was/is your "Sorry, I disagree, there is no obligation." a
response to it ?
No, you skipped responding to the question itself as well as answering to
it, but went for the end position instead. A defensive one I might add
(which makes me think you know very well what went wrong).
And "you keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it
means" (from "the princess bride").
No, you are not legally bound to anything. Still, although you are Duch (as
am I) we still converse in English. I wonder why ... Some kind of
obligation perhaps ? And you copy-pasted something from my post into
yours. Another kind of obligation perhaps ? You also put my name ontop
of it ... yadayadayada.
And what you did violates *several* obligations. With the major one being
that you're supposed to keep the conversation in an order which your
conversation partner can follow. Which was what my question was all about:
I did not see how what you quoted had any bearing on what you followed it up
with, and I wondered if I missed something. It turns out I didn't, as
there was nothing to miss ...
But in that case, why did you copy-and-paste some random contents and put it
above your problem description ?
Better yet, why did you pick me as adressee, as *nothing* in the problem you
posted had any bearing on what I said or even might have indicated. Heck,
I've never even reference the "err.clear" command, and pretty-much the only
one I did have an opinion on is not part (directly or indirectly) of your
And to make matters worse, the clearing-or-not of the error object by the
disabeling of the error catching command would not change anything to the
problem you described.
So, I think you are now able to understand my confusion about why you wrote
that, as well as why you adressed it to me. Nevertheless, I gave you "the
benefit of the doubt", and responded to it as if I where actually the cause
of it. With only a single line asking for clarification.
... And you thought that going defiant would be the best course of action ?
As far as I can tell you made a mistake bub, nothing more than that. The
world didn't end, and I have no intention to haunt you for it. I just
feel sorry that you feel that you had to respond the way you did.
Live long, and prosper (at least long enough to see the erring of your ways
