OK, we'll just have to take your word for it, I suppose... :-)
Dude - it ain't just me. Have you not gotten that yet? This was from SAIL magazine - and we're seeing the same general "Group Think" and/or "What The Hell?" sentiments elsewhere from guys far more in the know than I. So you're kind of arguing with the wrong dude here.

I can't help it if I've been right all along. It's just my burden to bear.
