I can't see where anyone called 'Kay' has posted, but then I can't see anything rude or offensive here either :-\

It's possible to put people on an 'ignore' list I believe.  Can anyone remember how to do that?

I think you’ll find it wa “KGarrad” - and, for what it’s worth, I thought much the same as the OP.

If you check what I wrote, I was paraphrasing a comment from the OP! ;D

My comment:
I am not prepared to use Apple/Mac under any circumstances.

Original comment:
I am not prepared to use Windows under any circumstances, so any suggestions for the Mac?

If you think my comment was inappropriate/rude, suggest you have a look at the original comment too.

If you don't want to help, simply don't reply rather than posting your prejudices. My original post was a request for help for a Mac user. I was not derogatory about Windows, I merely said that I did not want to use it. This is partly because I am heavily invested in the Mac system, partly because of previous poor experience with Windows.

Given your obvious Windows bias, you obviously know nothing about Mac software. So why post in a thread about Mac software. Your opening line about wanting to help followed by a but was deliberately unhelpful and clearly intended to start a Mac v Windows argument. If your intention was to be witty or funny then you failed on both accounts.

In the future please refrain from posting on threads started by me as I find you unhelpful, rude and rather sad.

I have decided to go with the draw program in Open Office, which is free and does what I want.

Now Greaves has posted their own solution, I am locking this topic to prevent further replies which are not in the spirit of Rootschat.
