    My response was a link to the Wiki for shill and was not meant to be insulting. It was just my comment on the tone of his post. After reading Mr Mills response to my post and giving it some thought I decided to post an apology and to explain myself but before I could...WHAMMO! I got this-

    I'll let the benefit of the doubt in this case. It's your first infraction, but be more careful next time. It's always a good idea to pause and re-read a post before hitting the 'post' button.

    Though the infraction is expired, I'll reverse it.

    Thank you.

    Ten years ago I was a moderator on what was then a very large automotive forum. I know what a thankless job being a moderator is.

    Keep up the good work.
