BigTex isn't perfect, but hindsight is 20/20. I don't really disagree with how he brought it up, given what he knew. He admitted that he was wrong about pookie.
I think you, ZAP, are the one who's making too big a deal out of something. You seem to pay no attention to the actual issues here -- instead you're attacking the messenger.
This board is important to my neurotic self. It's a good release while I'm waiting to hear about my future. And there is, like it or not, somewhat of a community here. Given that, I think Big Tex has a right to be a bit ticked off about what happened. You, ZAP, seem pretty indignant that I don't agree with you... well, tough. I don't. I agree with what Big Tex posted, and since nobody is perfect, I don't think it's worth making a big issue about how he brought it up.
