I am amazed.
Here I know I will come dangerously close to breaking one of the cardinal rules of this forum, if I don't just go ahead and shatter it... But Tim, dude, bite me.
Besides, I don't do "common".
I tried to be civil with you and understand where you are coming from.
All I get back is attitude.
Live well in the path you have chosen, my friend.
Tim, you are a Troll, plain and simple.
At first I was giving you the benefit of the doubt, but it is obvious that you are only interested in taunting reactions from folks, and when they bite, you hold up your hands as if to say, "Who, me???"
Also, trying to railroad people and lead their answers is almost as insulting as the Sophomoric idea that assuming a tone of correctness and being correct are the same thing. You claim to be an educator, but I can't imagine you holding any real title with the kind of sweeping generalizations and poorly supported arguments as I've seen here.
Not that it has anything to do with your post, but I wonder if you have any first-hand experience with the cost of making wine, or tasting experience in $500 wines (not articles or other people's opinions). Please share with us if you do in either case.

LL keep the faith baby!
Kill this thread and any others which might cause the self-annointed of this BBS any bruising to their oh-so-preciuos egos.
Heavens forbid we should have any discordant views.

Okay, Tim. We've only had 669 people register on the new forum at this point. It doesn't seem that 668 of them have had this kind of problem. But probably you're right. I guess.
Remember our discussion about real names when I signed on, and I mentioned that we don't indulge screen names and handles because we find that most people behave better when they're not wearing a mask? I still think so ...

Tim, an Internet troll by definition seeks to post provocative and controversial topics and skate the edge until his interlocutors eventually are driven beyond endurance and burst into flames, even knowing they shouldn't. Then the troll wins.
It's difficult for me to see any better explanation for what has happened here, and as the barkeep of this roadhouse on the Information Highway, my analysis is generally the one I live by.
