Ugly Rumours about my modified revTools

I replaced my revTools stack with your horizontal one(decided that I  
didn't want it horizontal) and then later put the 'backup' copy I  
copied of revTools back in and took yours out. Since then when I start  
REV the revTools stack opens and then hides itself.
I do not know that this is a result of your revTools stack and it  
probably is not. Since then I do not put/replace any original REV  
stacks with any others. The response to my problem below was a  
suggestion to look further into it and not an accusation or rumor about  
your stack. I did like your stack and I do trust your coding integrity.  
I am a newbie to rev and as such a little bit dangerous when  
downloading new plugins and trying them out etc. I might still have a  
copy of your 'replacement' stack in my plugins folder since i still  
don't quite understand what the plugins folder is for(when I first  
downloaded it I did put it in the components folder and made a backup  
of my revTools stack outside of that). I was treating the plugins  
folder like a favorites folder. actually I still am treating it that  
way until I can filter out the stack that I don't need or want in  

Sorry for any confusion about this and rest assured this was not an  
attack on your plugin.
