Genuine question, Hercules: are you on the autistic spectrum? You don't seem to be aware of how rude your own posts read to other people?
Labels, labels - why does everyone have to be something, and you have a cheek diagnosing that of me (Just looked up the definitive answer "In simple terms, an Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) is a lifelong disability that affects how someone sees the world, processes information, and relates to other people.") when you don't really know me and if qualified would have to speak to me face to face.
No, there is a crankiness that comes with age; it is unavoidable unless you are very, very lucky. You can't help trying to figure out how much time you have left etc. (my father died at my age) and then life kicks you in the teeth - my wife nearly died 6 years ago and is now disabled, and then to cap it all two years ago my health took a nose dive, and I have to admit I am not the carefree person I was 10 years ago.
I don't think I am any ruder than anyone else on this forum and when I have stepped out of line a couple of times I have realised and have apologised to that person. AND there was someone on this site who was very rude to me not that long ago and you made light of it. Let's face it, you just don't like me for some reason.
OK, it's your site; but there's no need to say to me even if my query was a tad brusque, (and I don't think it was) "the only person who is particularly bothered about having one is moaning and demanding like a petulant toddler".
