    He never did promise to close the thread, merely admitted that it was possible to ask to have that done. He also never promised to use the quote function, merely implying that he would no longer post after you provided a satisfactory answer. Clearly, he has never accepted your answer as satisfactory, because he's not actually looking for one, just trying to sow doubt.

    He stated in post #120 "I can ask to have it closed, but can't guarantee that it will be," which reads to me as an agreement that he would once he got an answer. He then clearly implied that he'd humor me after I humored him first in post #122.

    I kept my end of the bargain even though I knew that he wasn't going to be satisfied with the answer. But there is LITERALLY nothing more than what I've demonstrated in post #123. Nothing. Zero. Zilch. Does it seem fair to you that I keep my side of the bargain by humoring him, but he doesn't have to humor me, even though implying that he would in post #122?

    Also, I seem to remember TWeb closing threads where people have spammed stuff like this throughout the internet before (in fact, Sparko did close this thread at one point). Is there a reason mods are taking an exception to this one?

    It is in no way fair. He's not here to be fair. I'm just pointing out that he did not, in fact, make any promises - merely sought to imply that he might.

    I don't remember why this is still open. I would close it, but I've participated.

    So I shall move on and not take up anymore bandwidth.
