Like Michael I will also correct spelling if I think it would help future searches by members looking for particular keywords. (e.g. I will change principle to principal if needed)
Those who are on Android appreciate it too. Polls don't show under droid so it's the only clue we have that the thread is a poll.

I need new glasses for upclose reading. I thought the title of this thread rhymed with kitties. Otherwise I would not have clicked on it.

Oh, you think the culprit is that high speed internet connection? I thought the problem was due to our different time zones. I guess I could level the playing field by getting a high speed internet connection and moving to Texas.

Again, negativity not intended. When I was w*rking (in IT where acronyms rule), I was taught and management asked for it, "when using acronyms, the first usage of it in any communication should be followed by it's intended meaning" ie "I just had a TKR (Total Knee Replacement)". Just M2C
