    The title of the post was inflammatory. I have very low tolerance for people that make extraordinary statements and claims without solid backing evidence. Also, I did not personally insult him until he used abusive language and obscenities at me, which were very immature and hurtful. I am still waiting for an apology, but from people like that I would be very surprised if I ever got one.

    Look up the definition of an internet troll and you will see why these people do these things.

    @ matthewota, your posts in this thread haven't been very helpful, which i find surprising for a senior member. If you don't like the person then stop posting in this thread; i don't understand why you would keep posting, especially considering your first post wasn't very helpful anyway.

    Anyway, I might check out this SOHO site, it seems like quite an interesting website.

    ''A huge object comming out of the sun, followed by multiple comets''

    Matt, whats inflammatory about that title ? Only thing I can see wrong is with the ''out of the Sun'' I put that down to understanding , or lack there of.

    Have to agree with Psonice , it was yourself that actually posted the cracked pot image . Would you not admit that doing that was inflammatory ?

    You also said you were no longer going to post on the thread as well , which you have continued to do so .

    I agree that the use of certain ''words'' do not help the OP's case but they were used after you had posted and certainly after having said you would no longer respond to the thread because in your opinion the OP was trolling . So why did you respond ?

    Me thinks the thread needs cooling down a tad . A question was asked , ok maybe one that annoyed you but you did respond Matt , thus involving your good self. Might have been best for all if you had actually done as you said you would , i.e not respond any more . That way there would have been no personal respoce from OP to you Matt.

    JMHO folks . Life's waaaaay too short .

To me, that's just a guy seeing something interesting that he doesn't understand, and wanting to learn more about it. It was you that mentioned the crackpot ideas if you read back

    I'm guessing that there's a bit more to this (as in previous threads), if so I can certainly understand where you're coming from. But I do think your attack was a bit unfounded here on this one.
    I second that. Peace

    Thank you for your level head and comments, Pete. I'd have squashed this thread at the git-go had I been available then. Consider it now squashed.

    Also, for all to hear, Astronomy Forum is about supporting and encouraging one another.

    For the record, Winter's Reign, inflammatory language will not be tolerated here at AF. You want to remain a member of AF? Comply or find some other place to express yourself as you have here. If you choose not to, you will be "on the bus".

    Clear skies, all!
