I must say Lightning I'm a huge fan of your posts. I find myself agreeing with every you say. You make strong points which are needed because as you say the posters nowadays are very articulate and can write some excellent well thought out posts with equally strong points. Mrs Vimes, in case you couldn't tell that is a reference to you. Absolutely love your well thought out points even if I don't agree with them. It's nice to have someone providing a dissenting viewpoint without having to resort to insults or complete sarcasm. (the odd sarcastic comment is acceptable.)
Lightning I'm glad to have you championing our opinions and I'd like to say I don't envy your task. Making good arguments to some of these posts can be enormously hard. So I love reading your posts as you seem to do it with ease and your trademark humor.
