No, not at all, sorry if it came across like that. I was speaking in general about discussions on forums. I value music discussion highly. It would be so boring if everybody agreed. It's healthy to listen to other perspectives. It's just that sometimes forums foster behaviour in people that might not come out irl... So I was just saying it's a shame how often a disagreement turns into a bitch fight...
I sincerely hope you were not refering to my posts when said 'sly digs and handbagging'!
I didn't intend any digging or rudeness of any sort! i just aint interested in any of that bull on this forum....its not my style and I try to avoid the prolonged slagging matches that some people here on GS seem to revel in.
When I said to you 'its not personal' I meant it literally, you see i had thought about challenging the idea that SP's recent offerings were an attempt at marketing (for want of a better word) before your posts....i just happened to chime in after reading your post.
