Yes, Rich has a very unfriendly way to tell people
his opinion. But, unlike you he seldom attacks people
personaly and only if attacked first.

And if you would listen to Rich once in a while you
would see that he has a point. Always. Not always
one that i like, but one that i cannot deny either.

If Rich would be the kook you claim him to be, then
he would have gotten the mighty boot already years
ago. But he hasn't and is still a very well respected
