Thank you for the clarification. It was an honest omission without ill-intent.

Just because it is in a personal email from you to your lawyer doesn't make it automatically exempt from need to site your source.
It was honestly impossible to recall. A simple PM would've rectified it immediately.

Aside from my last post in response to bolding, I do not believe I have bolded anything. But I could be wrong in the few posts I have made. I have no desire to check any of my previous posts. Anyone is welcome to do so but I believe it would add no value to anything.

I have no experience with TapaTalk. Therefore I cannot comment on this.

Perhaps I will. Unlikely. I will point out the premise of this thread was hijacked and steered from the importance of the original topic.
