Think of all the good whiskey bottles you can get for that price! At the moment I´m enjoying brilliant stuff from all over the world (well, almost!) including my recent brilliant E.T. Lee, Blanton´s STFB, Stagg and even my newly acquired RHF has shaped up a bit even if I still regard it as a minor disappointment. Hey, I even managed to find a bottle of AAA 10yo (in Denmark, of all places!)Originally Posted by ProofPositive
Dave and Roger,
Do I understand you right here, i.e. that you are advocating self-censorhip? I hope I´m wrong but if not I think you should ask yourself what constitues a true friend.
From my experience, the ones who are always nice to you are, more often than not, the same people who talk badly about you behind your back.
A true friend, on the other hand, praises and encourages you when it is deserved and, at the same time, dares to criticize you when it is called for.
I cannot in my wildest dreams think that anyone from BT who stops by at this forum would dismiss SB.com members as "enemies" just because of one complaint.
A community that chokes on its own over-friendliness is not a good thing in my book. To me it is an invitation to dullness and complacency.
Hey, even the head honcho himself, Jim, is prone to the odd venom spitting and I like him all the better for it!
