"But does it give TM posters the right to insult _Jim and then invite him here to see it?"
Hey...As far as I know....Only one or two people were involved in that. The other 99.9% of us were blind sided. Just because you don't like someone who lives in the apartment building and calls names to you out the window...Does not give you the right to attack every tenant in the building.
Revel! No one was blindsided or should have been since _Jim was only addressing those who called him to this thread and to those who responded to him! If you read all the linked posts, you will see that _Jim was talking only about those ridiculing his views on the blackout. Folks on this thread who think otherwise are sensitized perhaps because of the past detractors who purposely and deliberately stopped by here just to be rude unilaterally. _Jim clearly did not do that and he did not denounce everyone on this thread, even if you do not appreciate his style.
