I wish to remind all who participate here that this is an international forum, and its members are from many nations. Sometimes people post things that are of regional interest to them and that is welcomed here. Sometimes those regional issues are of little or no interest to me, I read them for two reasons one I read all the posts and two it gives me a glimpse into the everyday issues personal and religious that my fellow Catholics face around the world.
If a post, thread or even a specific poster annoys someone, don't read it. In all honesty as long as I have been a member of this Forum (and I believe I am the senior member in time of membership), I doubt there is anyone who posts on a regular basis that hasn't annoyed me at least once. That probably works both ways
