I've read some old posts from Joe K. And if he's gone, this board has lost yet another good poster.
I know I'll draw fire for this: but here goes. This board has a right strong collection of mean-spirited people. Not all of course, but enough to ensure a constant low hum of bickering and sniping.
And just to head some of you off at the pass: Charlie fired the first shot in our war. If you go back to the thread where it all started, you'll see I gave a view about ideas taking off on the internet. The reply from Charlie was "F*ck You". No man can allow that sort of stuff, so it was on. Notice however, that at no stage did I swear or use profanities. I just chopped him to pieces with words and logic. And now he's gone. The board feels better, but gee I wish some others would go so we could talk about Beatles, and Beatles only.
