    Thats about the smartest reply I've heard on this thread.

    Period.

    You guys feel insulted or defensive if I say not all homeowners aren't instantly master tradesmen because they found an internet website to guide them.

    Terry...you of all folks here know what I mean.

    Not looking for a head butting contest, nor to ruin the free American lifestyle.

    Just saying it's only a matter of time before some screwball calls an attorney and decides it's this forums fault when he couldn't figure out that plastic vent pipes are only s'posed to be used on polwervents and his own stupidity burnt the house down.

    I'm actually trying to toss a tidbit of advice...you guys are tossing sarcasm back...mama-mia!

    Most other websites have a disclaimer, for good reason.

    Now that we are no longer arguing about the raison d'etre for this website (it looks like we all now agree that the site is a good thing) I was about to knock Grumpy down by saying that the average DIY book does not contain a disclaimer.

    But it does. Mine has a note to the readers. "Due to differing conditions, tools and individual skills, [*** Plumbing & Remodel] accepts no responsibility for any damages, injuries suffered or losses incurred as a result of following the information published [on this website]. Before beginning any project, review the instructions carefully, and if any doubts or questions remain, consult local experts or authorities [but not Grumpy because he is too grumpy]. Because codes and regulations vary greatly, you should check with authorities to ensure that your project complies with all applicable local codes and regulations. Always read and observe all of the safety precautions provided by manufacturers of any tools, equipment, or supplies, and follow all accepted safety procedures."

    Grumpy. Thanks for the feel-good factor.

    British teeth are bad but US teeth are really not any better. Your dentists just cover things up better. Like an acrylic tub liner.

    When I came here two years ago with a mouth full of grey fillings, the first thing my dentist did here was crown them all. So now I have a perfect set of shiney whites, seven grand later (on the insurance) but the signs of decay are still underneath.

    Would you like to see a pic?

    You're no different. After all, you're probably family.

    That was a US disclaimer by the way.

    I've got a thing for sucking blue Clorox bowl tab cleaners at the moment.

    **disclaimer: Ian does not really suck Clorox bowl tab cleaners or any bowl cleaners. This is just a dramatization. Do not attempt. Instead Ian really just has a penchant for icebreaker mints ever since he gave up the smokes four years ago.**

    Personally, the best advice given would be to delete the thread.

    Go to bed Grumpy. I am, and you're older than me.

    Good night.

    Actually, I'm younger than you think.

    Really? I think you proved my point and not only about ***.com but other sites that I didn't mention your involvement in this time but in the past here you've denied.

    In case you are wondering, I deleted some constant posting referring to lawyers and such.



    This is a board for both DIY, and Pros.
    You will notice when you register that we do have disclaimers.

    All advice should be field checked with an on-site inspection.
    Answers given here are typically general answers given to what we perceive as general questions. Without being on-site, there isn't much more you can do.

    Not at all intended as points "against" you by any stretch.

    FYI, you may have a few new friends from what I can see, despite any differences.

    Well that was one wild roller coaster.
    I'm just starting to work with an old friend of mine to bring solar electric and hot water systems, wind turbines, Flex Fuel Boilers, batteries, hydroponic gardening, books, pellet grills and more. Also the parts for DIY installation.
