    but yes a handful of omnipresent um...dedicated advocates... to be sure. And yeah, there's one in particular who's pretty driven. Though oddly hasn't chosen to pop by and share with the group. Funny that.

      Actually, I can think of a couple who do that now. One does it everywhere. One does it only withing RKBA-type conversations. Often includes intimations of "you're an idiot" and similar slams but without coming out to say those exact words, which would earn an HR. Skirts the lines very carefully so as to continue posting.
