The tone of the responses was very immature and depressing me, so I squirreled it.

Hopefully people know enough not to respond immaturely in this thread.

A well known poaster with enough sock puppets that he didn't really need another one. The whole blue-hopsack-collar/invisible divets/horse blanket jacket/etc. thing in MC is starting to take over, and I don't think we need more trolls to troll the trolls and keep it going/escalating.
