Jesus Christ. Since we're now on PM demands for explanations about this off-topic discussion (Criseyde I promise this will be my only contribution to this nonsense)...
My post was addressing both Carolyn and Derek, who both posted short and very black-and-white messages, within a couple of hours of each other, at the end of a complex and nuanced discussion that they evidently hadn't read.
I do know that noob is an inflammatory term (nerd, daugther-of-nerd, sister-of-nerd and partner-of-nerd here), I used it deliberately and apologized for it as soon as I got up the next morning. I had no idea the discussion would get so silly for so long.
It isn't even the relevant part of my original message. I could just as well have said "I love when people awake a year-old, 17-page-long thread without reading it and with nothing new to add to the discussion
Now for the love of all that is holy, can we please drop it. Kthanx.
