Actually, this is the best insight to come out of the whole, drawn-out dust-up. Clubs and cliques are for chumps....on either side of the equation.

Ah, so that makes sense. Because otherwise I was thinking maybe a platonic dialog or perhaps someone was deranged. Derangement is almost as good as a boating accident for something to watch.

I'm confused.

I haven't seen the "fight club" topic in a long time (years? many months at least). Why did the 2006 threads on the first page here prompt new comment now?

I don't get it. Do we have a new problem in the radar? Or just a desire to dredge up old ones?
