Micheal my post was more of a general observation of the last few threads on Apug, I am guilty of it as well after all I am proud member of "Team Ostrich". The discussions are usually quiet interesting at the start but seem to be degrading very fast see Aristophanes (prophet of doom) post and the answers by some of the Ostrich team. Apug has lost some it's civility and maybe you're right and the nerves of some Apug members are a little raw, but it's no wonder after all it concerns one of our favourite past times.
It's pretty much 2-3 ultra-rigid posters who'd rather everyone use the same thing, no choice, homogeny, predictability - so that we all fit into their little world view of how things should be.
If I don't want to use the digital, that's my choice, and leave me to it already.

Reason: let's keep it polite
Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
For those who don't know, you can click on a poster's name to get their profile and then in the left hand column click on "add to ignore list" and that person will be pretty much removed from your APUG experience. Don't feed the trolls, and eventually they'll fade away.
Just a friendly jab Steve but...difference between "analog" and "analogue?" Well, no - as far as I knew it was just a variation in spelling of a word that's pronounced the same way. I'm sure I'd hear a difference between you saying it and me saying it, or between me saying it and a New Yorker or a Texan for that matter, but that's regional (and national) accent; I wouldn't chalk it up to the variant spelling.
