Mods are people, period.
I don't see that Woofer was attempting to use a title out of order, he was posting as himself not changing a post or using elevated privileges to change history/postings etc ( as others have done on other forums)..
As TomW says what is said in text can be easily misinterpreted.
Hell I don't do well in person either, and come off an an a$$ a lot when i am trying not to be ( probably a lot more than in text in my case.)
One of my early posts here I badly explained something, which was quickly pointed out.
Sure it kind makes for a humiliating experience for sure, but he was right, and just pointing out facts, not being rude..
So in the end we are better for it.
Also as Tom pointed out, many of us are into the blunt details and have learned from experiences, and would like to help others learn from ours and not have to repeat the (sometimes expensive) disasters we all learned from.
These experiences repeat over and over all over the world, one person might luck out once in a while, but in the end they will wind up in the same boat doing things that are sure to cause trouble.
I'm pretty sure Woofer was offering these observations up to try to save ppl $$ and pain from the little he knew, not only for your benefit poorboy *if* it applied, but others in similar situation as well.
Glad to have you here Poorboy! it's great to see your perspective, and experiences.
