In your reply you posted:
"I think your posts over the past few months speak (actually volumes) for themselves so I will refrain from further comment. I am glad you "seem" to be enjoying your display now and I hope nursing school is going well. "
Ok, don't get me wrong here, but that's a bit creepy. It's one thing to argue the merits of an argument. It's another thing to dredge back through the comments and use personal info as a sort of piling on tactic.
Don't get me wrong, I've no dog in this fight, just that your reply seems a bit over the line.

Bill - if you've been following the thread since its start you would know he is working on a nursing degree, something we've actually discussed during a few posts among other aspects of his personal life. This thread has never diverted from its main topic since its start smile.gif
If I can't tell someone that I hope their studies are going well this semester as the work towards their college degree continues something is wrong with what you and what you perceive as creepy and over the top. I think its great he is in school and focused on a degree that once he graduates should guarantee him a job which is a rarity for most kids coming out of college these days. In fact as a former hospital administrator one of the largest academic medical center's in the U.S. I have always said that if I lost my current job I would return to school and get a nursing degree. You work hard, but employment is not an issue if you do a good job. On top of that I work at a large university that has a heck of nursing program. Forgive me if a take interest in his progress, but maybe you understand the post a little better now.
I am not fighting, a lot of us go way back on our discussions about all of this, I respect him for his passion (and OCD) and hopefully I have helped him at least once. Most of us have disagreed at one time or another, but in the end we almost always come to the aid of a member in need (one unnamed exception comes to mind who frequents the Pioneer threads).
You seem to be the one who jumped over the top on this one. I am going back to enjoying my birthday, always good to get a year older - especially at my age. Steve
