I'm sorry you took the "sucker" remark the wrong way too. To a cynic, anyone who does things the hard, honest way when there is a cheap, shoddy and easy alternative is a "sucker." In that context, since I am similarly a "sucker" as, I believe, are you, "sucker" is a badge of honor, not an insult. But again, I take full responsibility for my inability to express myself unambiguously.
I'll leave it at this because I think we're still talking past each other, even though we in fact seem to agree across the board, including your comments about Rogue.
