    I looked at the site and found 7 posts in one of the few threads about lenses, and nothing of note in them. that would warrent the pronouncement. At least at the time of the posting here.

    As for Ben Franklin he also was an outspoekn advocate of farting proudly! Go to Amazon.com, check the listing for a book by that name.

    I agree with what David Goldfarb wrote. He must have a job dealing with literary writings of some sort? hmmm j/k David.

    It would seem to me that certain individuals will take exception to anything and everything Mr. Simmons has to say, which leads me to two conclusions:
    1. he must have very thick skin, and
    2. discretion truly is the better part of valor.

    The internet is certainly diverse enough to accommodate multiple fora for discussion. We need not be threatened by that, and last I checked no one is holding anyone's feet to the fire to stay here or peruse discussions elsewhere.

    As for "stealing membership": that's your decision, not Steve's. I'm not sure I completely understand the misdirected ire, which leads me to a quote by Benjamin Franklin:

    "Tis better to keep one's mouth shut and be thought the fool than to open it and remove all doubt." Advice that AFTER this message I'll be sure to follow.

    fyi-the overall situation was taken off-line..
