Very nice points. You put into words what I was thinking and trying to find
words for. People have had disargeements on this ML before, but nothing like
that person as far as I can remember. There have been some very heated
discussions on this ML, but everyone cooled down eventually and started
getting along again. "Turn A Sucks" has been done to death by now. What he
said didn't need to be said in an rude, immature manner. We all know that
some hate the Turn A, some llike it, and some are indifferent to it. Its not
that I mind his dislike of the Turn A, it was the manner in which he said it.
Instead of saying Turn A Sucks, he should have said something like: I dislike
the Turn A because of reason 1, 2, 3, and so on.
