When statements are too generic or unclear as to what they mean ask. It happens all the time mate. If you dont understand or you are not sure of their meaning ask them what they mean. Ask them to give details.
That will prevent misunderstandings like this from occuring. Maybe not all the time. But it would be a safer bet to ask to give clarification as to what they mean behind a statement then to assume something opposite what they are asking.
In my honest opinion a simple question like:
Do you mean your 285 OC versus a 295 stock or do you mean a 285 OC versus a OC 295?
When a question like that is asked to get clarification it stops people from trying to guess what is being said and to understand each persons point of view.
I am not trying to upset anyone or be mean. I am just trying to play the advocate and keep the peace.
I can do that at times. Really i can. I am not the bad guy all the time.
