if you have seen true anal retentive behavior, then you would not willy
nilly call me being anal for the above - but rather your inclination to
put exactness to the statement I made in your own terms is much closer
to anal retentive behavior.

Granted what I stated didn't precisely cover all the various
possibilities of partitioning with or without LVM and therefore lacked
the precision that you hold so dear.

Thankfully, I have a sense of humor but not everyone enjoys having their
posts picked apart for what appears to only be petty corrections to
their imprecision...you should keep that in mind.
