Sorry, Arthur, I just saw the post tonight. Is there a time limit that I or anyone else is required to adhere when replying to a post? If so, I apologize for upsetting you in my posting beyond your time limit. My perceived modesty has now worn thin, and as for my procrastinating polemics, I've yet to attack you before now, either openly of covertly. Still, if you want polemics, read further.
Your childish antics and petulent attitude speak volumes about your personal character, and go far to confirm what John seems to feel. Like John, I'll give you my sugar-coated version: You may know a fair bit about Colt TSMGs, but but you're as abrasive as 60 grit sandpaper on a hemoroid-riddend fanny. I've watched your posts not just here, but on Subguns and Sturmgewehr as well. And on each of these sites, you do little more than berate and belittle anyone and everyone who disagrees with you. You offer little of value, either to further knowledge and appreciation of all TSMGs ("all" includes even my WH M1 with its genuine bullet logo and bonafide "Thompson" name) or words of advice, encouragement, or even cameraderie among TSMG aficionados. Your holier-than-thou attitude flat-out sucks.
Nick, delete this if you feel I crossed the line. I likely did by flaming, but I plead mitigating circumstances. I've watched Arthur berate others for a long time, and now am under attack myself. Do as you will.
After sleeping on it, I'll edit my own post. That last comment was out of line on my part. My apologies to the board.
