@sandman I took it as a joke, and my response was intended in the same light; that said, if someone else had written what I'd written, Admin-Bry'd probably be trying to find some way to slap electronic wrists. All I can say is I felt snarky; I apologize.
But too much focus on cruisers has legitimately been a sensitive topic on these forums, a subject that has demonstrably driven out several people who are otherwise interested in the ostensible subject of these forums (JoCo and his music, in case anyone's unclear about this). I've appreciated those comments in this thread that remind us of that, and I don't find them "overboard" in the least.
PS: @chicazul doesn't need me to speak up for her or anything like that, but I will say this -- I would handle having my position misrepresented as part of a joke with which I disagree much more poorly than she does.
