I remember another "loud conversation" I had with, I believe, Mark2 (forgive me if I have the wrong Mark), but we jabbered at each other enough where, at the end, we were cool. Mark thought i was too harsh on WGs at that point.
Frankly, I don't think there's anything wrong with arguing if both parties have valid (and interesting) arguments. I think I've mellowed over the last year, and anytime I read something trollish or just plain stoopid, I kind of ignore it (example: I never really chimed in a Willy's meanderings). But it's kinda nice to have the flexibility to take an opposing view (or make a negative comment) without fear of some ass monkey MOD deleting/scrubbing/ass monkeying. And frankly, this hobby has much to be negative about, and that stuff should be called out no matter the verbiage of the writer.
That was me TB. In time, I am coming around to your way of thinking, some of us may be a bit slow, but nothing wrong with a little debate. I still think there could possibly be one or two former WG members allergic to fits sammiches though.
