I think you may receive more help if you were to use a different username. I trust this reply does not offend you.

You could have finished it:

"but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure"

that one of the forum rules was to the effect that such wording was not permitted "Even by inference using asterisks and similar symbols".Its totally unnecessary anyway. It was only about a week ago that a similar thread was removed by FE. Heres to the next one. Meshuga.

In my experience at that age they seem to break anything at all without even trying. If it were me buying I'd go for the cheapest I could find as it's unlikely to last long whatever you buy.

If my comment last night was in any way insulting, I offer you a full apology. Certainly this morning it does not seem to be a kind comment and any perceived slur is entirely my fault.

Please accept my apologies for any criticism implied in what I said.
