At least I hope that ChrisA understood what I meant.
I'll spell it out for you trollmonger (is that even a word?):
1) I read Steve's posts but I found his answers inconsistent.
2) He accused me of misrepresenting his view and you called me a troll.
3) I suspect that you didn't follow the entire discussion or you'd have 
noticed the inconsistencies yourself... but I understand that calling 
someone you don't agree with a troll is easier.
4) ChrisA gave the right answer which was the point I was trying to make 
all along.
5) I could have said "I second that" or "I agree with you", but I 
thought that "Welcome to the realm of trolling" was more amusing. I 
thought that people who agree with me were supposed to be troll as well. 
But I should've consulted with you about that. Sorry.
