Reading through this thread (a FEW times), I am to the conclusion that you are getting unnecessarily defensive and are taking things out-of-context, and generally being abrasive for no reason.
Now, obviously, we are all entitled to our opinions, and yours are fine, but they are aimed at the wrong targets.
Please READ CAREFULLY a post before blindly making assumptions and wrongly accusing people of things.
Accusations and assumptions are NOT opinions, btw.
You are simply reading and taking things wrong. This isn't supposed to be a site to flame people and offroadohio did not flame you.
Nowhere, did I read where anyone questioned your personal off roading skills, nor did they directly accuse you of breaking a law. Yet you immediately ASSUMED that your skills and morals were being questioned/attacked.
Not the case.
Have a beer and a smile.
