You don't recognize the difference between criticizing a flawed comment that leads to a thread of misleading speculation and replying to a stupid question with snark?
Yes. Semantically, they are different. But in one case, you are criticizing "forum impropriety" (that is still completely within the bounds of the rules), and in another you're ripping off another user for asking a "stupid" question (I'm sorry if they actually have lives and don't live by salary numbers like you and I do).
Anyways, don't really want to derail the thread into another silly argument. You're so full of yourself, so I just don't see the point. I just find it humorous (not hypocritical-in fact, I disavowed that in my last post. Guess you have a guilty conscience).
