The parallel, I guess, is that both you and cruiser are either causes or examples of a general taste shift in each forum. Beyond that, I don't think the two cases are all that close. Cruiser's specialty was/is to derail every AAAC thread about anything interesting into debates about "Why would anyone pay more than $30 for a pair of pants when my stuff from JC Penny bought in 1965 is perfectly fine? Anyone who does anything different or spends more is just a snob." I understand. However, I dont think I singlehandedly have caused a taste shift here. I may just be a little bit more visible about my choices. I am the first to admit that I come to learn, not to teach. I just want that to be clear.
