We all shared our knowledge with those who came seeking it - you'd be amazed at the depth and breadth of the accumulated knowledge available here (or maybe not).

KC...I couldn't have put it better. In this thread, our usually very friendly discussion was side tracked... As a moderator, I have taken the liberty of deleting posts on issues that should be handled offline.
And, as the owner of WINES.COM, I invite anyone with issues about this forum to email me directly... Send your message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
