luckily im from the sea islands in south carolina where gullah is a norm for spoken linquistics or i might be totally confused with this thread all togeather as luck would have it though i have resorted to my roots for a translation of what has been put forth here with no apparent need for further translation or grammatical interpretation needed and as far as i can tell the thread has gone to hell in a handbag as it is now as about OT as a thread can get without resorting ambiguous overstatments of incompetence or swaying into nontangents of discussion based nonfact technical aspects on a given symptom i have found however that the run on statements without the punctuation has made for a challenging read at best and an aggrevation at least
scrib abell ~~speaks fluent gullah....some spanish....very little german....sometimes proper english... and never french~~

Showing what or who you are responding to is just good manners. I realize that you may not have figured out how to do this as you are using WebTV. Why don't you take some time and learn how to post correctly? Hell, even Marsh figured it out.

Because you didn't quote my post, I can only assume that this part was intended for me. I'm not an idiot, nor are probably 95% of the people on these newsgroups...but we do like to be able to logically follow a conversation. The way that you do that is to paste (or whatever way you want to accomplish it) in the relevent parts that you are responding to. Just makes life simpler and makes you look smarter.

MY TRUCK ?????
obviously, you have the same skills at message attribution as you do at punctuation
attribution (n.) at-trib-bue-shun 1) the art of including the previous post in your reply, so that readers can tell what the hell you're talking about... 2) figuring out who said what in a thread... 3) something you should learn to do, do folks don't immediately pick up on the fact that you're a clueless web-tv newbie

Hey Steve, I think you are insulting or "going after" the wrong guy. I don't know too much about Gary, but I believe that he's quite successful with his own business. Yes, he might be abrasive and to the point, but he understands the finer points of grammer and newsgroup posting and so is very easy to follow when he gives advice or answers questions.

This sounds like a case of the pottle calling the kettle black. Nobody is insulting you, just asking you to be more clear and follow known rules of posting so that your knowledge and skill can be readily used by all here.

These newsgroups are not just about "helping" fix all the problems that folks have. It's also about good manners, simple yet effective grammer, and at least a bit of posting etiquette. You are probably very good at what you do and knowledgeble, but it doesn't come across that way when you post.

Is that "all" you make as an owner of a business with 5 techs? That doesn't say much to me. I've already made that much this year and we are only 2/3's of the way through. What does how much money you make have anything to do with how helpful and polite you can be here?
By the way, kudos' for quoting the posts that you are replying to. Good work.

Good thing he didn't give Gary his home addy.. Gary's liable to go to his house and chunk his tax return on the table and make poor ole Steve cry..........or at least poke em in the nose holes.

Who gave this guy the bright idea of quoting? Now he is making a real mess of quoting. His quoting technique follows his perfected way of making everything one long run on sentence.
If he has trouble following simple procedures such as proper quoting (not to mention simple english comprehension), how the hell is he following the detailed trouble shooting documentation need to work on todays complex automobiles?

True, but at least now you can figure out who/what he is responding to......sortave.
He'll probably get better, Marshy did, though I suspect he's constrained by the limits of what Webbie's can do.
