Re: [APD] Theory vs. Actual

sorry jerry. its not against any one person. it's just the fact that 
resolution never comes, and it gets to where as i read it, it's just 
bickering. and sometimes when i ask a question people seem to completely 
ignore or it reply with this sarcastic toned complete slap about how 
it's just crazy because blah blah blah. it gets a little aggravating. 
you start feling like theres a lot of pompous know it alls that are just 
blowing smoke and puffing up to look bigger rather than interested 
enthusiasts who have something to contribute in a good nature.
again thats not towards you or any one person. just an aggravation, i 
dont paticularly like being made small or watching other people do it to 
each other either. i mean i can go watch some crappy realty show if i 
want that.
just blew some steam is all..
