Please do not get me wrong, from my last post. I am not taking sides on tgis issue, not attempting to target anyone here.So, no need to either blast me, nor harbour resentment to be used in a future thread response on another unrelated topic.

My perspective on dumb statements:

We all say dumb things on occasion, (I am in this group)and more likely so in the heat of an emotional discussion. When we do so, it "looks better on us" when we admit it was so and everyone can then move on to more fruitful discussion. On the other perspective, there comes a time to move on from identifying and dwelling a dumb statement. Others likely noticed it-dwelling on it just reflects on you as being argumentative, not reinforcing the dumb statement itself.
