    I don't suspect anyone is a sock, unless and until I see evidence that points that way. My only concern is about the aggressive opening post made by a new member. It is a bit unrealistic to expect productive conversation when you start by accusing a whole bunch of people you don't know of being unintelligent. And if we want to have a discussion board which promotes the civilised exchange of ideas, we should not encourage that sort of post.

    Would you not agree?
    I do agree, but I stand by my statement. Identifying socks isn't his job. For instance he thought for months that @DGUtley, @Docthehun, and I were the same person.

    If he had his way we would have been purged.

    Your response is understandable, but I hope you understand that I can't really get involved in something I know nothing about. I know you well enough to totally respect your opinions - can we leave it at that?

    But leaving aside the history you mentioned, my only real concerns are the approach made in the opening post of this thread, and the responses to it. I think it was unnecessarily aggressive, and condemning of people who think differently from the OP - and as such, only makes the divisions on this board worse. Nothing personal as far as the OP is concerned, but the board does not need more of that. I am sure most thinking people here want this to be a place where there is an exchange of ideas - not just a venue to vent, and bash those you see as the opposition. We have seen far too much of that - specially since the election of President trump.
    Oh, I wish I were a glow worm,
    for a glow worm's never glum,
    'cause how can you be grumpy
    when the sun shines out your bum!
