Matt has always been cool to me. I don't understand why he allows his board to operate like it does. Heck a lot of the time I just post their to debate issues like "global warming" or the repeal of the gun ban in Washington D.C. and on both accounts you wouldn't believe the amount of people that buy into one and actually think it's a gun that kills people even though it's an inanimate object that just lays there.
Same here, Matt has always been cool to me as well, no issues there and I'm with you in wondering what the heck tends to happen on shocklines these days. I've been following the gun ban thread (I'm just shaking my head at the crap being said and I know better than to even attempt to post) and watching you and thinking, "No, no, Dale...just walk away, buddy!" I'm a proud gun owner myself and all for it, blah, blah and I keep a .45 in my beside night table, haha, but you are going to get absolutely NOWHERE in that thread. I learned a long time ago to separate the author from his/her opinions in threads like that, they'll write about guns and but don't own or like them, lol go figure.
Err, anyways back to this thread....
I haven't picked this book up yet but I'm itching to. As soon as I get the advance check from Apex Publications, it's bought!
