Perhaps I'm in the minority here, but this bothers me a bit. I don't know if I would say it is uncivil, but at the very least it doesn't feel supportive, IMO. Now, I suppose we can all assume Dr. Bob is not here for support, but how do we ever really know why any poster is here and aren't we are expected to be supportive of everyone? If this was written about any other poster, would it have been acceptable? (Maybe Dr. Bob could answer that?)
Dr. Bob seems to be somewhat forgiving of attacks on him and to some degree, I suppose he has to be since this board is, in part, for challenging his decisions. To me, though, this feels more personal than "admin".
Jai, I love to read your posts and I hope I have not offended you. Maybe I just have a stick up my @ss.
