He's a balanced poster and asking ppl to be subservient because ppl provide info and have long toes is ridiculous. Then just don't answer if it aggravates you so much.
Some ppl are way too afraid of saying something negative. This is a public board. We've all heard the hosanna stories on ARN & SCS and in the end OJ was critical himself too on points ppl 'dared' to bring up earlier as well. Look at the sp now, lot's got burned. Being critical is good and often saves you from getting your azz handed to you.
This board has deteriorated because ppl find it hard to keep their mouth shut when there's really not much to say - not because of posts like U2.
