Whoa! Heaven knows sometimes I (and may I say "we"?) can be quick to take offense and have every reason to be, but the LBYM "straight pride" thingie is overblown.

Yes, I do strongly disagree with Tony (TMF2Aruba) on sending people over here. I think that was a major lapse of taste, as well as board etiquette. See this post: http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=15042439

BUT, as for any slight to us and our friends, let's keep in mind that the entire, total, complete discourse on that thread was almost 99% (okay, I exaggerate, but you get my point) dominated, dominated, dominated by sympathetic posts. Let's not become the heckler's veto ourselves.

Okay, ready to be flamed...

Fool on!
