You are correct on one point, sir, when you write, "It is NOT the purpose of this forum to continue a soap opera, become a whine session, nor to examine 'inner feelings.' (sic)".
The STATED purpose of the BBS is, "Post your question in electrical, appliance, architecture, or other forums and get answers from other do-it-yourselfers who understand your project."
DIYers. Answers from DIYers. NOT moderators. Moderators generally oversee specific areas of expertise; settle disputes, and clarify points of information in the discussion. Unfortunately, you seem bent on CAUSING disputes rather than SETTLING them.
I've looked at the web address with which you've provided us, Mr. Kastenholz, and you are an EXTREMELY* accomplished professional. Your bona fides are exemplary. While I don't expect you to mollycoddle us, you do shoot yourself in the foot with the abrasive, sarcastic manner with which you impart information. It is not effective.
Quite honestly, it's a shame. If you could mask even a little of the obvious contempt you have for us, the uniformed, you'd be an excellent resource. People with your experience are few and far between.
