vertical line So, leoj99, you cannot answer any questions. All you can do is repeat insults like a parrot.

Just keep insulting as long as you like. Others are ignoring you. I'm listening, and waiting for that moment when you have something to say that is actually meaningful human communication.

vertical line i watched for months the continuous diatribe, given completely by Leo, and the over running of this board. Day after day all that was posted was a singular perspective (i thought maybe you might notice no-one answered) but you did not. This is ok, as mentioned it is life. However it is not conducive to helpful disscussion. Which is the reason i come here, and i know many others do also. And it is not a valid excuse to hide behind mis-understood proclamations of Zen protocol.

Having said that i like that you are here Leo as it gives me reason to self evaluate, and learn patience.

For that i am sincerely grateful,

You're confusing "all YOU can do is repeat insults, just keep insulting" with "I am insulted."

They don't mean the same thing.

He went away because he was having a difficult struggle, inside and outside the forum. He'll be okay, he is already helping.
