I agree with endparen..the hottest discussion here is not that hot compared to some I've seen.
Some people just don't like debate. *They should avoid threads that give the faintest whiff of debate within. According to the rules I read, this is an off topic forum. *It was made quite clear.
And if you're going to post an argument, you should be ready to defend it with facts, something approximating facts, or your own experiences. *SIH liked to foment debate(I'm game!), and didn't like it when people disagreed with his opinions.
His posting that he's leaving leads me to believe that he wants to be begged to come back. * *
I am still awed and grateful that the mods and owners even ALLOWED some of these threads to show up. *You don't see this kind of forward thinking very often, and I hope they don't change a thing. *I didn't follow every thread, but I really didn't see anything even quasi-brutal in the ones I did follow. *April
