First, this thread was not about the issue he raised with the player. That's why it was bad form. If the community needed to know about it, then the proper approach (apparently) would have been to start a separate thread.
Second, I didn't "mislead" anyone. I basically said I disagreed. That's it. In other words, I offered an alternative opinion. And, in part, that's what discussion boards are about. People discuss and offer various opinions or viewpoints. Some opinions are informed; some are not informed. If you believe my opinion is uninformed, I'm fine with that.
But it's up to the reader to weigh each person's post and determine the veracity of what they post. If my opinion is uninformed, then that should be clear to even the most casual of reader. But there's no "misleading" on my part. Misleading would suggest I'm posting something as being true even though I know it is not true. That's not the case here.
And third, I didn't say you or he had to "leave it" because I said so. I'm not sure how one could come to that conclusion. Again, I simply offered an opinion that everything has been said that can be said. On that opinion, again, I could be wrong or uninformed. But offering an opinion is not the same as me saying others have to "leave it."
Yes, I didn't qualify it by stating "in my opinion" or having IMO in a parenthetical. But I always thought those qualifiers to be redundant. Of course, it's my opinion. It's a discussion board. I shouldn't have to clarify that I'm posting my opinion.
Regardless, if you and he want to discuss it some more, have at it. I suppose there is a part of me that's curious to know what more does need to be said.
