    Can't say Hello? That would be a nice way to introduce yourself. Or am I the only one who noticed the rudeness?

    Well, hello then. But his opening post kind of looked like an ad.

    LOL, It did kind of have that feel to it, but regardless...we welcome you...prepare for the assaults!


    A man went to an eye specialist to get his eyes tested and asked, "Doctor, will I be able to read after wearing glasses?"
    "Yes, of course," said the doctor, "why not!"
    "Oh! How nice it would be," said the patient with joy, "I have been illiterate for so long."

    Let's make an attempt at not calling someone rude on his first post, shall we? We need OMDs weighing in on this site a lot more than we need smart mouth opticians. We already have plenty of those.

    Sorry guys. just calling em like I see em. And I'm not a smart mouth optician. I was offended and I spoke up. And you need all of us on the site. We all have some valuable input and ideas.

    sorry Wes but being offended does not show how I can't controll my emotions. It shows how another person is insenstive to other people. You are an ***. I am done with this thread now.

    Just noticed that Alan C. Westeren is supporting optiboard board financially. That's a point in his favor. I'm inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    After the greeting he got he probably won't stick around.

    It certainly seems as if you can't control your emotions.

    Wow, we certainly didn't put our best foot forward here, did we? How disappointing.

    Welcome Dr. Westeren. We look forward to your participation on OptiBoard.
