Avery has marketability and that is simply a fact, the results are tangible.

That's a good, intelligent, well-thought out argument. That is not what I was arguing against, however.

What irritated me was his (and others') statement that something is "typical HF". The unstated, but clear meaning of this is, "I am better than all/most of you." The question begs, therefore, why? Why are you better than the rest of this forum? And if you are (or are not), is it not obnoxious for you to say so?
