I have no delusions - what I wrote yesterday was the meanest and rudest thing I've written in years to another poster on a board/forum. It took me a long time to write, and an even longer time to go ahead and post. Can't say that I'd take any of it back, though. If Turbo has the right to flood topics like this, then I've got the right to say I don't appreciate it.

Like most of the people I've met in this life whom I genuinely dislike, I have no idea if Turbo's doing this on purpose or not. And like all of those other twits, I really don't care either. Perhaps Turbo is a very sophisticated troll (undoubtedly the most successful), or perhaps he's (she?) just dumb as paint and doesn't understand what's inappropriate about posting in this manner. Either way, it's happening, it's harmful, and it needs to be dealt with.

I've never been to a web-based forum that is as polite, open-minded and insightful as RTH. And I've never seen this kind of response against a poster here, even those with far more contradictory views than Turbo. What does that say?

Turbo: we're trying to have a serious discussion here. If you don't like how it works, leave. Can you at least tell us that you understand why we're so frustrated? Attack me, or us, if you like, but it's not going to impress anybody. But seriously, dude (dudette?), what could YOU do here to get your point across better?
