i could try to make an aurguemnt between the difference between "off topic" and "wildly off
topic," but i won't, though i do agree that many of your posts come off as antagonistic (even if
they aren't intended to be).

sorry, when you said "if you don't like off-topic, inflammatory posts, then stop
making them," i thought you were using post to mean thread for some reason. while i agree with you
about nimh vs alkaline, it was out of line to assume (or imply, whatever) john's friend was
stealing the batteries. i probably should have stayed out of this thread all together, but it's
too late now.
