Since it seems like several people were posting prior to my action I will restate it here:
This thread is closed until 1700 UTC tomorrow ( 8 am East Coast, 10 am Central and 11am West Coast. ) Then if we can keep it on topic and from including personal attacks talk can resume though I am not sure what more there is to answer.
John and I have spoken via PM. Nothing more needs to be said in the open.
The PM was written by me. I wasn't intending for it to be brought into the open, but since it was, it's fine that it was talked about. I will answer questions if people have them. But, perhaps send them via PM as to not de-rail this thread.
