    That thread was just plain B** A** nasty.
    I was being a wee bit tongue in cheek. But I don't take such things all that seriously. I imagine all those folks taking shots at APUG probably visit over here quite often. (or the hybrid site). So regardless if they post to threads or not, I suppose page lookups they perform helps Sean's numbers with advertisers which in the long run is good for all of us.

    I sure hope if they buy Ilford products, or ressurected Agfa products ( or any other number of materials) they post a thank you over here. All these products might still be around or coming on line without APUG, but I believe this community played a big role in encouraging their continuation, development and demonstrating a market exists out here.

    Jorge is one person that I was very sorry not to meet at the APUG conference , I hope to meet him at 2008 conference and if not, if I am ever in Mexico I will look him up.
    Very talented platinum printer and I would love to see his prints .
    Have to admit , wouldn't want to get in an argument with him.

    Some of my favorite art is by people I wouldn't want to share a room with.

    Of course, loving to argue, sometimes my favorite evenings are arguing with people I totally disagree with. The trick is finding people who don't take it personally.

    I think that's called debate. That's one level up from argue.

    Calling it "debate" implies we're limiting it to being civilized and being truthful.

    I have one friend that always use statistics, usually of dubious or instantaneous origin, to back up his arguments. One friend disarmed him with the rely, "Sure, but 78 percent of statistics are made up . . . "

    The Blacktailed Prairie dogs agree as well
