I resist top posting and trim and thread my replies, stay on topic, am  
polite, all while tapping out on my iPhone display.

But that ain't enough no, now I have to watch my run on sentences!

Sheesh, from now on MHR, your  name will be Grumpy.

So Grumps, if my answers bring up more questions then why not just ask  
for clarification rather then get all over my poor punctuation?
