Okay, "yell" was hyperbole of course. But gently scolded for criticizing something sacred. There are a lot of people who stay out of this thread completely, or stay quiet, (that would be me) because of how uncomfortable it makes them.
It also makes this thread very difficult to read, because almost all real discussion/questions get buried within minutes by the onslaught of "nice shoes nephew" "thank you uncle" posts. I mean, to each his own. I'm just the voice saying that not everyone on SF who loves Aldens thinks it's a quaint/cute thing, and that it actively hurts the ability for people to discuss Aldens in a meaningful way.
It's extremely easy to scroll through anything you find less than meaningful. Sad that such a small thing makes you uncomfortable. Many of us here probably had older family friends that were thought of as uncles, imparting wisdom and good advice.
