Hmmm... you must not have gone TOO far back in the group history, since Gunner posted some things in the last week, or so.
The single most-destructive thing to intelligent discourse here is that our community mental-defective, Jon Banquer, is still here, although he tells the world that ANYONE who EVER uses the USENETS is a total loser!
Almost everyone except a few users who like to argue with him have plonked him completely, and you'd be well-advised to do so the first time you see him post or respond. Those few keep rehashing his stupidity, and he even answers his own posts under a couple of pseudonyms, so we still have to endure some of it.
