i think you are reading things into what he said, and how he said it that probably didn't happen.
you are claiming that he made these people feel like ignorant fools, and dopes, and to be honest
that seems like it would be out of character for randy.
i have been asked my professional opinion about things and even given unsolicited advice ...
my opinion went against the beliefs of the people who asked me for it ... does that mean i am a jerk too ... ?
