I had already decided on my response to Tug's disgraceful posting before Phil's reply, which I am glad to see makes basically the same points.
As a point of etiquette Tug's point is fair enough. But it pales into insignificance beside Tug using Thierry's tragic, fatal accident as an opportunity to a crude and blasphemous personal assault.
And it isn't excused by the 'decent lapse of time' or 'starting a new thread'.
I don't care what you think or reply, Tug, I'm out of this forum. But I'd like to think you'll publish an apology to all readers and then delete the entire thread after say a week. Bye all.
