That poster will take offense that his information is incorrect, or needs to be amended. In doing that the poster returns to the thread to argue his point. The choice then is to just let the posters argument stand without contest.

Quoting isolates who said what. In a thread with many posts it doesn't leave any doubts as to what was said...either good or bad. In just replying without quoting, a disagreeable reply gets countered by the poster realizing it was in reference to his post. I'm all for the agree to disagree theory, but, that might be too easy for those that take offense at someone that disagrees with them.

I don't disagree with you totally. Where I do is both parties are assuming that they are the only one that is right. Neither side is willing to take into consideration that maybe there are two ways or more to approach things.

Danger situations demand speaking up. The op can decide who he wishes to believe as long as the info is presented.

It's normal to get offended when someone says your wrong but you should be able to think before you respond because you may be wrong or partially wrong. Not saying just you.

When the same person says your wrong all the time you start to get offended before you read anything because you anticipate it coming. People disagree it happens and it don't make either on right. Just think politics. Each side thinks they are right and the other is wrong on everything. This leads to nothing getting accomplished, dividing of the whole community (forum) to the point people don't care anymore. In the case of the forum they start leaving.

Look I'm going to step back from this madness to let our two new mods take a look. I'm so tired of it that I might not be thinking straight. Maybe they can come up with a simpler solution. Like I said we are not always right or have the right answers. Maybe the people involved will get the idea and work it out on there own. Hint, hint with my fingers crossed.

If not then I will do what I have to.

this whole forum could "self moderating" IF ....

IF... everyone would just post suggestions based on their own experience, expertise or provide relevant links to question, You Tube or other wise, it will work better, as we all would like it.

Questions posted are sometimes vague and the answers are only as good or specific as the question is specific. There is no need to call into question another's expertise or experience, it's a affront and not necessary, it is just their opinion. If you have a different approach, just suggest it, and leave out any reference to an approach you disagree with, UNLESS quoting it adds to the clarity, not an argument.... "I do it this way, it works for me" .... kinda thing.....

As stated there is often more than one correct/easy/good/safe way to accomplish a task, no need to get all "high and mighty" about having only one way to do it.

We seem to have a lot of issues around the chemistry and art of finishes. There have been so many advances in the chemistry that unless you are in the industry, it is difficult to keep up them. Those who are currently using the products and processes will have a better idea of how they work than those who have not and who have never tried them. There are so many combinations of stains, sealers, top coats, that unless you have a specific regimen and can list product names and types, it's a tough call. Then there is the issue of refinishing, and what is the base coat. Often it's not known by the OP, and there's another can of worms to open.

All I'm suggesting is to tread easy, speak for yourself and not against others and this should be a better place to hang out.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specfic. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo
