Just between us chickens, I actually wasn't being particularly serious. I tossed off a casual comment, guessing at what another poster meant.
Somehow, this is so important to you, that you have to not only dissect my unimportant post into tiny pieces, but you have to then follow it up with a wall of text, on a thread that started out as "let's tell humorous stories about flashpoints"
The Shadow forum is that way.
Perhaps there, your infinite wisdom may be appreciated in all it's glory.
