What a nice, respectful person. I wonder what is it that you feel the need to prove. If you're different and interesting and better than us, you have the chance to show it by what you write, not how you write it. I am always wary of men who feel they have something to prove.

As always, very good information on this thread.... but you guys are casting pearls before swine.

Mr. Cid, I find your bold italic type to be incredibly difficult to read for entire posts and tiring after a very short time. My way of dealing with it is that I won't be reading or responding to your posts. Good luck with the egocentric rugged individualist pose.

Mr. Cid, thanks for the thread. There have been many excellent responses by the majority of gracious ABF users. I will be referencing back here in my own search for a teacher.

P.S. My weak eyes found your use of bold-italic font quite relaxing.

P.S.S Lulz at your response to the few attempts to force submission via petty demands and personal insults. thumb

Not that there is any objection to your posting -- but if you want, you can add a thread to your "Watched List" and get updates by email - (or not, by setting your notifications).

Go into the thread, at the top of the first post you will see "Topic Options". It is a pull down menu, and there you will find the "add topic to your watched list". Then in your profile you can see a list of all your watched topics. Very useful.

I get updates to 2 thread emailed to me regularly. ..It means you don't have to log on to follow a thread you're interested in.
(Which is great for me because if I'm not at my computer my email is much easier to access than the forum!)

cheers

Hopefully, others too will have similar questions and find the thread useful. I've noticed often someone else find them even more helpful than the OP.
