I think this is a super charitable response, and the way these conversations should go.
This is not. Nobody was shooting down your contribution — he was questioning / discussing, and I think he was being pretty fair about it, given the tone I’m seeing here. We all need a way to ask questions about the posts of others without always assuming the asker is trashing our own view.
To be clear I hate to butt into these things but when I see things going off the rails a little on the nerd-out topics, I just want to remind everyone that we’re probably all on the same page as far as what we’re here to accomplish.
Generally speaking I’d like to thank everyone for not devolving into flame war. If this the angriest it gets around here I can be nothing but grateful, all things considered. This is the internet after all.
