Sometimes I do choose to specifically address the specific poster by name and/or quote the specific post. Other times I choose only to address the issue itself, especially when I do not want to create a misunderstanding that could make the poster in question look like he is saying something as his own position when in fact that may not be the case (and probably isn't) and if it was it could get him into really hot water on this board. I'd rather take the flames myself then get an innocent flamed. Now as to non-innocents well I'm not so protective.
Do what you like. But don't expect responses you don't like. Especially, in a public forum.

(You seriously need an editor!)

I'm still not convinced that your "jaywalking" post had to be so confusing and so long (no one was seriouslly talking about it).

Indeed, the following indicates that it didn't.

Let's be sure that it actually is "jaywalking" and not peds. legally crossing and your just mad because you have to stop for them so your calling them "jaywalkers" when they actually are not and your just being an aggressive vehicularists who doesn't respect peds.

Hmm, okay another update edit, and in pretty red now as well.

Apparently there is a forum rule I'm unaware of that requires that if I make post-51 concerning a topic raised in post-50. I must quote the relative part of post-50 or at least say that is the post I'm referring too and if I do not my post will be considered off topic and misunderstood. And such will ruled to be completely a result of me failing to quote or at least reference post-50 as what I'm answering when I write post-51.

Thanking you for pointing out another area where I must indeed be careful to not count on "common sense" or trust the "obvious". I admit that I have been trapped by my own logic on that one.

Folks, I hate to mention it here, but you are taking the thread way off topic while you discuss care and feeding of posts on the forum.

Point taken.

Turbo1889 now having been caught in his own logic will now shut the ^@^ @&%&%$#@&% up when it comes to "the care and feeding of posts" on this particular thread.

You should have given Turbo a hint.
Hint: it sorta sounds like Twilight Bigboy

The 1969 film won three Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay. To date, it is the only X-rated film ever to win Best Picture.

Movie?!? You fellas are just being modest.

That video shows ILTB, on a recent trip to NYC, being shown around by his urban buddy njkayaker. As you can see, njkayaker has the 'city walking' thing down pat. This was ILTB's first visit to the Big Apple, and not knowing what to expect, he only brought one set of clothes, his usual down-home-in-Iowa garb. You have to admit, it looks good on him.

Any resemblance those guys have to actors Jon Voight or Dustin Hoffman, or that street scene to Manhattan in 1969, or the video to 35mm Eastman color negative film, are purely coincidental.

As far as calling dispatch, I cannot even guess at the hilarity that would ensue if I called dispatch and reported that a car did not yield to a pedestrian right of way. Most likely would be a yes sir cars do that, for your own safety let them pass. So I do my little dig and get in front of them as long as its relatively safe and legal for me to do so. I kind of feel like the more pissed off drivers get about them darn people walking in front of them the more discussion will occur, and the greater thought and awareness will be among the reasonable motoring public. The jerks will continue to be jerks and will continue to press their size and strength advantage over both law abiding pedestrians and cyclists.
Maybe not in Salem or Eugene but in Ontario, this is possible and besides that, in a town of less than 10,000 with the traffic of a city of 30,000 sometimes our officers and dispatch pay attention.

And maybe I went to school with a couple and they've all known me for 29 years. Can't hurt too much.

I hate to think about it but reading this thread has mushed my cornflakes.

They're still in the box in the other room and no powdered milk has been mixed. Oh well.
