See my post above, Sideways. It explains everything. If that doesn't make sense to you nothing else I can say on the matter will.
His comment was an obvious dig at people who DO found it amusing whether he ment it to be or not. Its like me saying your post sounds like something a retarded person would write/think/post (Your pick). That would be my opinion right? and im not directing it at anyone. Its just my opinion on what i just read. But in reality my comment is definitely offensive to the person who wrote it. Just as his comment is offensive to the people who found Chaels book amusing.
But it is what it is. You keep doing you.
And yeah it was the start of the thread which is why he should have picked his words a bit better as to not insult anyone because no one was insulting him.
