A weird thread, this one. Kinda reminds me of Field Of Dreams, although only the negative part. Let's see..., hmm.. Some pretty darn quotable stuff here, boys and girls. For instance, "if you haven't posted about this before, your post doesn't count". Wow. So there's an optimum moment in the space/time continuum when posts can be made? Wow. Posting after that moment nullifies a persons opinion? Wow. I gotta hand it to ya.
Oh ya, the Field Of Dreams stuff, you ask? "Build it, they will come." That's the quote, anyways. I wonder if anyone of you guys're familiar w/ the term neophilia? It's a medical term depicting a fetish for everything that's labeled 'new'. A person suffering from neophilia considers everything that's new to be the absolute best, sacrosanct and above criticism. Oh btw, a neophile is ill, y'know. Just a thing to keep in mind, I guess.
That said, seemingly some of the HT&L models are hi-polied just because. Oh ya, I agree w/ the OP.
Merry christmas to all who celebrate it!
