|No Curt; I haven't said anyone is right or wrong.|
No, you didn't out and out say "Curt you're wrong". You did however seem to be implying you were right and I was wrong in your response #14 where you used the phrases, "correct practice" and "normal practice". The implication, to me at least, was that my method was not "correct" or "normal" and yours were. Which, again to me, translates to "I'm right, you're wrong".
What I was objecting to was you telling the OP he was wrong in your reply #10.
Nowhere in #10 did I say the OP was wrong. In fact, I've jus reread all my responses and the closest I came to saying the OP was wrong was #7 where I said, "I wouldn't do that, you risk a "duplicate IP address"
Besides, my response in #10 was directed at you, not the OP.
I did reply to a somewhat sarcastic remark from you (#10) in a similarly sarcastic manner (#11). I'm sorry if that upset you but that's always a danger when we start employing sarcasm.
Oh I definitely employ sarcasm..........frequently even. But my response in #10 was not meant to be sarcastic. I admitted to having made a mistake. As you pointed out a post or two later, I misread the exact response I was responding to and not a previous one............much to my shagrin...........but #10 was not meant to be sarcastic in any way, shape or form.
Now that really is enough from me. I'm happy to discuss technicalities but I'm not going to get involved in silly arguments.
This wasn't meant to be a silly arguement. I think you can agree the "using exclusions in a home LAN evironment as vs not doing so" part of this discussion was technical and not silly.
I was offended by what seemed to me to be an insinuation that you were right and I was wrong.
I will admit to being a little more "scattered" than normal this week due to extenuating circumstances above and beyond the normal run of the mill day-to-day life problems which makes me a little oversensitive as well as more likely to miss an important detail such as the OP saying they used an exclusion. So in the end, if there is fault for this "silly arguement" it must be mine and I accept that.
Thank you for maintaining a professional demeanor throughout our discussion.
Have a nice weekend!
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
