I just fully caught up on the thread after replying to you and ilukey77 both. I saw how many posts I had to upvote of yours mostly in regards to open standards but there were a few other points made I was affirming as well. Sad its so hard for some people to see the advantages of something so obviously good for consumers.As we're not disagreeing on fundamentals in the other points, allow me to address...
Where I was going with it is this is what I like about your posts in retort/agreement. You really do try to be fair and while Tom's is one of the best sites for this, I personally find you embody that mentality well. Its nice to see and as always its a pleasure to debate, agree/disagree and chatter on with you in the forums. At the end of the day its users like you that keep me coming back.
