  1. re: BHGP (I’m kinda blackballed over there, so I try not to post anymore) — I don’t think anybody in their right mind blames you for the question. And I think most are smart enough to understand the nature of the “beast” that you work for. Moreover, I’m positive the guys over at BHGP understand the difference between you and Hardy Party. So I wouldn’t concern yourself with the question, the answer, or any subsequent discussion. You bleed black and gold just like the rest of us, or so it seems, so I’d imagine you get to do your job without losing too many supporters. Well done, Marc.

  3. Thanks, Patrick. Much appreciated.

  4. I’ll offer a no-comment. Misunderstanding in my opinion, but not something that keeps me up at night. Still a loyal reader, just no longer a commenter.

  5. I’m a no-commenter at a lot of sites.
