Uh, Wolf? You’re new to the board, so you may not realize why your insistence is hitting a raw nerve. Folks here are still grieving badly over Wally’s death. Techchick is overloaded and stressed right now in her “real life”, but she still took the time to create a loving, perfect memorial for Wally in that banner.
It’s even more moving that the Chicago Reader donatedthat space to honor Wally. It’s a very real symbol to most of us that Wally was far more than “just a poster” or just an anonymous line of print on the screen.
When posters gave you possible solutions, they were honestly trying to address your concerns. By insisting that the banner was made in a way that interferes with the operation of your computer, even after explanations to the contrary, you made people angry.
So people are sensitive right now on anything that touches Wally…but your insistence was tactless in the extreme. This was not the right forum or the right thread for you to post this. Shayna called you on it, and your bad manners.
I’m willing to chalk this up to inexperience and go on.
