I calls 'em as I sees 'em. Mike Yup. As do I- no hate just observations. @ In Stitches your point is well made ... Except these are opinions about a poster's online personality, not his knowledge, and thus are IMO equally valid. Clearly many SF veterans seem to revere him for great pics and good advice, which was not in evidence more recently, hence some newer members not being so impressed. In any event I find hero worship by any grown men a bit nauseating and some of the admiration shown on this board definitely crosses that line. I would also say that I've met quite a few people IRL through online forums (fora?) and no matter what their online personality may have been like they have all seemed to me to be solid citizens. Anyway I've had enough of this, time to let it go.
