BoulderTroll, that was so very well said. Good manners use to be common, but these days it seems to be rather fleeting. The part in bold is very true for many of us who were raised to respect the opinions and property of others (even if we don't agree with them), and is one of the reasons I don't post very often in this sub-forum.

LW - thanks for returning some sanity here!
