You are arguing with FNB as if he made a legitimate point in good faith, to spur discussion. But of course nothing could be further from the truth. He just saw an opportunity to take (yet another) shot at his endless list of iEnemies.
A hallmark of serious disputation is some attempt at a modicum of consistency. FNB, however, prefers the any-weapon-at-hand style of argument. Apparel Arts drawings are bad when I and others praise them. But when FNB wants to write an essay called "Moder Day Apparel Arts Man" about someone he likes, then they are good. Apparel Arts essays are terrible and stupid when they are posted on LL. But they are fine when FNB begs tutee to please post his essays on the FNB site.
Note also the 10 millionth FNB declaraion of his upper class roots and his snobbish denigration of his inferiors. Those of us who admire the drawings are trying to live above our station.
I have met my share of upper class people in my time, and I have never come across one as insecure about his standing in the haute monde as our Carl. The geniune article is more like Vox, though perhaps a bit more outwardly humble (even if that is a pose).
