I never said that.

You stated that some posts made unreasonable compensation requests and I couldn't find one, so I asked for a reference to your comment.

You are right about one thing, time to move on.

All this seriously makes me thankful I live in a country that doesn't do the whole tipping thing.

Since you kept coming back to what reasonable people would do, I assumed that was your position, not to mention that you did keep stating you felt there was no one that said anything unreasonable. So I made what I consider a reasonable inference. I don't recall using the words "you said" anywhere.
I can't recall using the term unreasonable compensation requests, that has me confused.
No wonder I am confused and frustrated here. To me the term reasonable is subjective. What I term reasonable may seem unreasonable to you, and vice versa. I don't need to go back and point fingers at someone who posted here in order to define what I consider reasonable and unreasonable. Besides which some seem to take it personally when you disagree with them...
I didn't realize it was about being right, I just thought it was about airing your views and opinions, sometimes debating points, sometimes clarifying or explaining your views further, I will try and keep this mind for future posts...

Thank you for clarifying that for me!
