first off, go to http://www.ccgprime.com/feature/inter/aaronf.htm It's an interview with Aaron Forsynthe. You remember Aaron, he's the one who wrote the "Stop being so casual" article. Surely you must remember flaming him. Ironically, it's done by Baskil, the writer who's "top/bottom 10" list got HIM flamed severely too. These are two guys who have gotten a LOT of flak from these board. Some highlights from the article: Now, for an admission: Aaron Forsynthe ain't that bad. It occurs to me that we've picked up the nasty habit of being overdefensive. First that thing with Aaron Forsynthe, then that hubbub over Baskil's article, and now we're working like crazy, and Ed is editing out enough stuff to make me think that he's actually planning a hostile takeover of the U.S. and need information repressed. If this post gets edited or deleted, I will be pissed. My message here: Relax. This is a website, we are people. Magic is a game. So is golf. You can win money at it, but if you do, it's no less a game than if you don't. You can agree or disagree with stratagies, but the game is still solid. I think we owe Aaron and Baskil an apology. My opinion, I don't intend to force it on you. Sorry. I think we should stop being so uptight. Just relax and let this go where it will. This is a great site, but don't get defensive. Accept criticism. Recently, I've felt more and more that I'm now one of the more relaxed members, and that disturbs me (As it would anyone who knew me.) What's going on, guys?
