This is IMHO, so you are free to express your opinion, but this is demeaning enough to be in personal attack or insult territory.

All he said was that he is 62 years old and it's a bit late to start at the bottom rung of the ladder. You are the one who turned it into a demeaning comment about a lack of skills. If you don't understand that what you are saying is an insult, then maybe you should restrict your comments to the Pit where insults are allowed anyway.

To everyone else, this entire thread is getting too snippy. Let's all dial it back a bit, please. All of you know the difference between IMHO and the Pit. Post appropriately.
