After 50+ years in aviation, I don't like reading red as that is never good.

I have 40+ in aviation as well. Never liked seeing the red notes,lights,etc. when doing the maintenance or during flights after maintenance with flight crews-they got kinda jumpy at that🤠

Again, I apologize for the red font but being called a douche, etc. tells me all I need to know about the respondants. I simply don't belong here and they made that abundantly clear. I'll have to figure things out on my own or find another forum where I'm welcome.
Actually, we're somewhat mechanical around here despite what others may think or call me.

New member, asks for info, gets info from a variety of sources....after about 8 of your posts with the 'Hey! Look At Me!' obnoxious font, I and others bring to your attention how much of an irritant it is to those of us who scan and read a LOT of forum posts/info...helping others. Yellow sux too. I can only imagine how bad the red is on the non classic view, where everything is yellow vs the classic view with everything blue.

Your selfish response to those volunteering free help, raised the ire and you had to endure a SINGLE comic meme. Oh, the horrors.

FAR from every forum member relating to a douche function.

Figure out your issues with others, and stick around. You can even have your 'LOOK AT ME' font colors....just not the red.
Or carry on with the sour grapes "i'll take my ball and go..."
Folks over at the DP would luv that

At the end of the day, there are some pretty smart guys (both with diesels as well as other subjects) that visit this forum everyday. Truth of the matter is that most folks here want to help out a fellow DMr.

I think that you have been the recipient of blow back by coming across as a smart a$$. Clearly, it is not known if that was the intent or not.

Just like in life, there is an occasional dust up on the forum but calmer/cooler heads eventually prevail and we move onto the next topic and try to help the next guy or just shoot the breeze about almost anything.

All in all, this is a pretty cool place to hang out.
