Hmmm - No offence was meant specifically to you Rev. Think you may be a tad over-sensitive as to who I’m attacking and even whether I’m attacking.
It’s (to my mind) a true statement followed by an opinion. Gems are precious (fact). People who think they are not spend too much money or time (opinion). No controversy there. What’s missing (and was never intended) is the ‘I think Revelate is one of those people and because of that he’s a bad bad person.’
I cannot help if you feel it was aimed at you… I can only clarify that it was not. The post was in response as it was continuing a theme and I think the original point was valid and did not merit the argument against it because you may have a different play style or approach.
I’m afraid the matter of losing your respect, while sad and unfortunate, will not change the nature of my posts. My style is acerbic, but I try to help where I can or give my opinion where I feel moved to. If that loses the respect of some who are sensitive to the style of post then I guess I’ll have to live with that and be Mr Billy No-mates… poor me.
You still have my respect (even if you are over-sensitive to acerbic posts) as someone who is knowledgeable in the game and I’ll still read your input.
I don’t in any way require reciprocation, but apologies for hurting your feelings in any event.
