Nice to make your acquaintance, Cosmo.
As it happens, I'm prepared to let nontechguy thinks what he likes about me: I don't believe one's sexuality is relevant to anything whatsoever, let alone forum chat. I was just a little surprised by the question and wondered why nontechguy felt the need to ask about my sexual preferences in the first place. If he'd have explained , adequately, why this was relevant I may have been more prepared to discuss the issue.
Also, the wording of the question (I'm not gay but...) made me think that perhaps nontechguy has some kind of agenda regarding homosexuality. I mean, this is an anonymous forum and yet the idea that we might think he is anything less that 100% straight seemed too much to bear.
On a lighter note; the (lack of) punctuation in nontechguy's statement amused me, so I just couldn't resist a little playful editing. Not big, and not clever - I'll leave other people's posts alone in future (Apologies to nontechguy for that little misdemeanour, just a bit of fun
(So, level of forum gayness thus far stands at; 50% straight, 25% gay and 25% undecided. Now there's pluralism for you!)
Oh, and congratulations on your engagement, Cosmo
