I quoted you because it is in that text that it is made clear that Bigger continues to choose to not participate in this forum. For the record, I’m glad that you made the invitation to him to return (Thank You!) and am saddened that he didn’t accept it.
Having said that, I believe that we should respect his decisions (and every one else’s for that matter).
You are right, you did not “say a damn thing about Bigger being discourteous”, in fact, no one did, and I never said any one did. However, hobby’s comment (my 2nd quote above) suggests that Bigger should be considered discourteous if he doesn’t address “the issues here in this thread”. Because we know that he will not (reference my 1st quote above), I think it is disrespectful of that decision to suggest that when he doesn’t, it is because he didn’t “muster the courtesy”, which is another way of saying he is “discourteous”.
The above are opinions that I believe to be true…they may not be for you.
