Don... no disagreements on the over-the-topness of his project. I also question the design (or lack of) and agree that it has grown into a "complex" project
And... I have to admit that I was amused and/or bewildered at many aspects of the project.
My point was that the comments, while in many cases correct, were delivered in a destructive and mean manner. There is a difference between saying "What is the reasoning behind doing it that way? You really should consider ..." and saying/implying "You're a total idiot.. that's the ugliest tank I've ever seen". I don't take issue with people giving constructive criticism, I only take issue with the personal jabs that people were taking.
Okay.. that's another 2 cents worth and I only had a nickel to start with...
