I found that rather disturbing too. And another smaller man as well. I once worked studying monkey for six months, and sometimes the behaviour on this forum is like watching a pack of young male monkeys. The rhetoric might be human but the underlying psychology is just simian sometimes.
And I'm sure neither Achillus or Mafoofan do themselves any favours but that still doesn't excuse the mob mentality. We are all responsible for our reactions and they cannot be blamed on someone else.
Are you kidding me? Achillus was acting like a moron, insulting everyone and everything. he got what he deserved. And Foo's self-appointment as the czar of style on SF didn't really work out as planned. Especially after insulting everyone here by telling them they can't dress and then posting his own attempts.
