Man...Don, Don, Don!
You should have just left it alone after your first reponse to Chet which was civil and pretty well stated...your follow up was really unnecessary man, and you totally undermined the points you were trying to make.
I know you probably got p---ed, and maybe you hit the "post" button before you thought it all the way thru, but you just got personal, which is what you seemed to be rallying against.
I myself don't really understand why this thread degenerated into argument, because I don't really think the spelling thing is a big deal. Yes...Chet did seem to attack you personally, but you may have been better off not reacting to it. I like the idea of "take what you want and leave the rest", buffet-style, when approaching the forums. I myself sometimes regret getting pulled into some of these threads (and this could certainly turn out to be one of those times! lol), but for the most part I just leave this stuff alone and only read and respond to the music related stuff.
Since you seem to be a relatively new member, it would be cool to squash this a bit so you can hang out with us and have a good time talking shop. You should also probably know that the site administrators have a history of removing inappropriate posts and even deleting memberships.
I hope this stuff settles down, and FWIW...welcome to WN.
