    Bill,

    I wasn't commenting on the thread as a whole but the comment to which I refer appeared to be a general outlook on life and, as I said, a person will think what they will but I just couldn't let that one slide without expressing my disappointment that a person will judge another simply by how they're dressed.

    P.S. I agree with Steve's assessment earlier that this thread has seen its usefulness.

    Jonathan, I agree pulled out of my larger statement that line sounds harsh. I don't think that those who know me in the real world would describe me as harsh or judgmental. I certainly don't think less of a working man because he is in working man's clothes. What I respond negatively to is people who seem to show little regard for others in how they speak or dress or even invite negative emotions in their choices. If you choose to dress in a way that shows you don't care what anyone thinks of you or in a way that invites controversy don't be surprised if the reaction of others is negative. After over 6 decades in this world I don't look for confrontation or opportunities to chastise others but, as you point out, I do have a right to form an opinion of you based on how you choose to present yourself.

    I to am done with this discussion.
