@chalket: Sorry, but I'm a-gonna get all serious:

I used to abbreviate @CrakrJak as @Crakr...

The he explained one day that "Crakr" meant old-school "code cracking" and "Jak" referes to that era too.
Hense his name meant something like: I`m good at code hacking!
BUT Others simply called him "Cracker" in that "bad way"!
So I stopped shortening it and now call him by his full name. HE NEVER complained! I did so freely!
Others? Like "patchgrabber" = @patchy.
"FoolsPrussia" = @FP
"AuburnJunky" = @aj
Them I asked if it was OK to use shortened or altered versions of their names, and they said yes! So now I do!

Respect is NOT something you demand of others, it`s something you SHOW and hopefully earn in return...

NOTE: I sometimes shorten other names, but NOT every time!
QZ =QueenZira but I`ve never asked if that was OK all the time... just fyi...

No worries mate! I explain it often.

But would it "kill you" to say "5Cats"? Harm you in any way?

>>@chalket: It's an "IAB Wierdness": You cannot have both Quotes AND Links in the same post. Images are OK though... @FancyLad knows about it, it`s been here since DAY ONE! lolz!

I`ve never, even once denied that the "top execs" were looting the company! I`ve even said so outright: "burning building" ring a bell?

BUT that`s only a side-effect of the problem, stop it and what? NOTHING changes! The company STILL loses a Million bucks a WEEK! The Union is STILL on strike! There`s till NO MONEY to pay what`s owed...

Again I point out that the $110 million savings was likely through layoffs (according to your articles, but it`s not too clear) NOT wage concessions.

If there had been wage DE-creases? I think the Unions would be shouting about them from every rooftop! Their silence on the matter...
