    We definitely need this to be a sticky! Im sure if a Mod is contacted they can decide whether or not it is sticky worthy!
    Thanks for putting this together I just sat and read through every thread.

    Just thought I'd add another thread on here....apparently I can't edit my original post since it is so old, but in this thread SueB does a very good job of explaining how to determine if a feed is a ration balancer ;)

    Also thanks to everyone for the compliments...I too hope it can become a sticky to help everyone find it :)

    Wonderful idea, thanks. Wish you'd done it sooner as it would have saved me lots of time the other day. :)
