Ausie, every post of yours I've seen (there aren't many) has not added anything to the thread. Instead you insert negative comments and act like a complete dingbat. If you're not going to add constructively don't bother contributing at all.

To have an opinion is not a motive to banish. Better to return to subject of thread.

Thank you
