Perhaps you could have taken your own advice and started a new topic?
But sometimes it seems the best approach is to use an existing one, n'est pas? :)
Hypocrisy isn't really an appropriate accusation for you to make in this context.
Someone suggested to the OP he look into the monster thread...and he explained why he didn't...and then had to defend that view from further attack.
To then describe that as "hypocrisy" isn't accurate...or helpful.
Bottom line for me is if I can't quickly locate the answer I'm seeking, I'll post a new thread.
End of story. No one need be grumpy about it. We all want to help, right?
