Re: I got mad beef with...
allow me diffuse the beef....
hippos is a decent poster, but his OP in this thread was quite offensive so I responded with vigor
the participation of little-known posters in argumentative or polarizing threads is welcomed because they are like the unbiased consumer, and which sides they end up taking is often amusing and reflects the charisma or whatever of whichever "veteran" poster that drew them in to their side. An audience is always appreciated, and an animated and opinionated one is even better.
I feel hippos is just saying "yep i've spent years accumulating 10K+ posts on this board, so if you havn't dedicated years and years to this board and don't have thousands of posts you don't belong in important threads"
