Easy buddy. Your input here is so important dont go anywhere. You just helped me the other day for goodness sake. Tony's just trying to do what he thinks he should. We cant judge him all the time. He is our best shot at keeping this site what it has become. New people are coming here all the time in large numbers.
He just changed your words a little thats all. Its not like he failed at a brothers surgery by giving a bad margin or injured a brother by incorrectly performing radiation.
If "Been There" is not legit, shame on him, if we shun him in any manner and he is legit big, big shame on us, right?
Thats my two bits anyway.
