From a previous thread, but this thread made me want to reflect on it:

You make it sound like I enjoy listening to the sound of my own voice..
I love Proto's posts....and I assume it's not that BFAN (or myself) thinks he enjoys listening to his own voice; it that his posts are smart, full of facts, yet easy to understand and grasp...it is a talent.
So for me to go and argue or convince somebody about their false concepts of electric "COULD" go well...or could end with me calling them "stupid poo poo pants in the pocket of big oil" or something similarly silly.
this thread is a great example....BFAN links to the TTXGP Portland site and I go, "ooohhh, pretty...shiny fast things make me happy happy joy joy, where is the like button to push and signal my approval."
Proto comes back here with facts, figures and insights to the race I would have never seen.
It's kinda like if Proto and myself are both shown a small sac filled with Tiger's Eye gemstones:
Proto's response would be along the lines of: Tiger's eye (also called Tigers eye or Tiger eye) is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually a metamorphic rock that is a golden to red-brown color, with a silky luster. A member of the quartz group, it is a classic example of pseudomorphous replacement by silica of fibrous crocidolite (blue asbestos). An incompletely silicified blue variant is called Hawk's eye.
