Things got a little out of hand as I was writing a response to raven, I see.

I am hoping the closure is temporary as I think it's important for us to work out our differences, and I believe we can. Raven is a valuable member here and my intention is to negotiate a compromise between us.

BigDave was being a friend to me and regrets his participation in the thread being closed. I certainly can't be angry with BigDave for anything he did. We did speak however, and he has promised me that he will remain non-active in the thread if you agree to reopen it.

Another suggestion is to move the thread over to here and let us finish.

Thanks for listening and thanks for keeping the heat down, KiwiNZ.
