It saddens me to have to say that I personally am giving up on this thread.
I write it off as hopeless from here onward.
Perhaps you may agree with my assessment that a couple guys just seem to be incapable of a real conversation in spite of AA6YQ's consistently stable posts.

I simply don't understand why you take this so personally, even going so far as to say you will follow him on every forum to "make sure to tell people exactly what kind of person you really are."
I wondered at length about the same thing and, from where I sit, the only way I see it is that envy towards AA6YQ's success seems to be the driving force.
Sort of like an electronic form of "road-rage" is at play here, hum?
What has this to do with ham-radio?
That's not why I took up the hobby; that's why I find this so distasteful; that's why I'm leaving this thread.
In your post#291 again directed to KD8MJR...
I have my disagreements with Stan but at least he seems willing to "man up" when it's called for.
To his eternal credit, I agree with your writing about K9IUQ.
