Michael, you mention several comments in your post concerning the "chemical guy's" comment.
Michael, this chemical guy, concrete guy, lumber guy, carpet guy, tool guy, whatever guy is what you stated an Instigator.
He is not part of this board and is not considered part of this board. Other people not part of the board have their "bill of right" freedom to post on this board and to reply in what ever manner they wish.
You replying and messing with this "guy" is a waste of time and will get you now where.
If you got your answer and feel good about it, then all of us are happy.
