    A looks to the past. B looks to the future.

    ***NOT A TEACHER OR A MODERATOR***

    Ravi_B, a better title would have been "I didn't/wouldn't want to do that."

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    Ravi, both A and B must end with full stops if they are to be considered correct.
