Kimberly, I can't tell you how impressed I am with that comment. SHJ has been more inappropriately mean-spirited to you than to almost any other poster, and yet you have something nice to say about him. Thanks for restoring a small chunk of my faith in the character and generosity of our little community.
To everybody else, let this thread remind us that personal attacks and vitriol have very tangible consequences to the health of this message board. Let's keep it civil and remember to respect each other's opinions. We don't have to agree, but when we disagree, let's be nice about it. As every musician knows, the tone quality can be more important than the notes being played.
(And I apologize if I have blatted out too much in the past...)
