> PLEASE DON'T USE MY PLEA FOR HELP AS A WAY TO BASH A MODEL FOR YOUR
OWN SELFISH AGENDA

Ok, I admit it: I, at the behest of the Trilateral Commission and the
Illuminati, with the support of the Internal Brotherhood of Elks and the
Reptilian Humanoids from the star Sirius, have sworn that my selfish agenda
is to bash the FMR.

You have unmasked me!

Drat, foiled again.

No if you read my PLEA for help talking about just replacing the 4 NiMH
batteries and it being a model 50277 you would see that it is neither a FMT
nor V2. PLEASE DON'T USE MY PLEA FOR HELP AS A WAY TO BASH A MODEL FOR YOUR
OWN SELFISH AGENDA!

I am posting a problem that greatly concerns me, asking for help as to what
is wrong, not to give you a soapbox to fight about some other issue. CAN
ANYONE TELL ME WHAT THIS MEANS, AND WHY? DID I DO SOMETHING WRONG?
