That's not what I said.
And I notice that you failed to address *any* of the substantive points I
raised. I wonder why that is...
I've demonstrated that you were completely wrong on every count. And now all
you can do is complain about my tone.
So be it.
*Pretentious* gasbags. And I haven't been uncivil to you. Sarcastic, perhaps,
but not uncivil.
Anyone else hear the sound of a punctured gasbag sputtering?

His rational for that? If you don't breathe for several hours after drinking it,
it won't hurt you.
The "WD" in WD40 stands for "Water Dispersant", which is what WD40
primarily is, not a lubricant. It's mostly kerosene with a small
percentage of other added petrochemicals.
Use a drop or 2 of light oil to penetrate between the moving surfaces,
and wipe clean so it doesn't attract dust.
It's your own dirty mind that led you to that conclusion. 8-)
Soybean cooking oil would be a better lubricant for *mechanical things*
than WD-40.(castor bean oil used to be used in autos!)
So would kerosene.

I've read that silicone oil can cause problems by being incompatible
with any oil already in the bearings, and it's better to use regular
light machine oil (5, 10, or 20 weight). Another person said that
sewing machine oil isn't good because it's vegetable oil (so it won't
stain clothes permanently). Only the bearings are supposed to be
lubed, not the nylon wheels or the tracks. If your door runs on pivot
hinges instead of tracks, then aerosol grease is supposed to be the
best. This grease is mixed with a liquid solvent that evaporates after
it's sprayed on, and auto parts stores should have it because it's used
for door hinges and latches.
I once had a squealing speedometer (metal cylinder spinning in nylon
hole). I cleaned the parts with degreaser and applied silicone oil --
still squealed. Cleaned again and tried WD-40 -- again no help.
Another cleaning and two drops of light machine oil -- no more squeaks,
Don't be a sucker. "Silicone" spray, such as the Gunk brand you buy at
Home Depot or the auto parts store, is *not* silicone. It is a few drops
of silicone oil in a bulk of petroleum distillate, which is to say, not
significantly different from WD-40. Read the label or MSDS, and you'll
find that silicone is the last ingredient on the list. Actual silicone oil
is expensive, so you won't find it in a big can for a few bucks.
