History repeats itself! Looks like BAD has been trolling in
rec.photo.digital too. Check out the following post he made today in an
effort to smear a rec.photo.digital regular like he *attempted* to do to
Charlie in here.
Subject: NOT off-topic. The definition of insanity is...
repeating the same behavior and expecting different results.
Which leads us to the issue of why do so many otherwise
intelligent folks persistently waste their time arguing with
George Preddy over the drawbacks of the Foveon sensor. His
posts never make sense. Why, or why do you all keep at it?
Arguing with a twit like that makes you look foolish due to
the uselessness and absurdity. I prefer to debate an
intelligent, rational person. I've mentioned to George a
couple of times that he seek help for his OCD, but it looks
like he hasn't taken my suggestion to heart. Meanwhile, you
all are feeding his obsession...
Looks like it's time for me to do a *global plonk* on BAD.
As much as I absolutely hate to say it, Bill, he's at least partly right.
Preddy is in my KF because he is completey out-of-focus on the Foveon, presents
blather as fact, and has probably done more harm to Sigma marketing than any
single person in any other place.
That said, I don't see why Dave goes after him, since rec.photo.digital has
many members completing capable of containing his goofiness.

Sure, Charlie. Sigma is not Canon or Nikon, but there are always going to
be brand loyalists in support of an underdog. Same with power tools. At
least you killfile the guy and move on if he annoys you. You don't go
around starting new flame-provoking threads about him. Why didn't post an
"intelligent, rational" (Dave's words) message with facts to backup his
views that Sigma/Foveon is inferior. There is PLENTY of evidence to support
that! But low and behold, Homer starts another flame war instead.
I reckon I'm just a little ticked off at Dave for going after you like he
did. I represent the part time wrecker. I check in here several times per
week, and it seems that Dave is always in the center of something stupid. I
may not have posted 1 tenth as much as he has in my four years here, but at
least I don't clog up Usenet with a bunch of crap like he does.
This part really ticked me off:
Sounds like the average opinion of BAD in here. ;-) (useless, absurd twit,
not 'rational person')
Funny how Dave thinks he is in a position to cast stones at others.

Dave Balderstone, Lew, Robert B, Larry J, and the rest of the gang (sorry I
couldn't name everyone, but you know...) and it sickens me that there is
always someone trying to screw up a good thing.
Sorry bout the rant.
smear a regular?? HA! We are talking about George Preddy
you clueless nitwit. The only thing "regular" about George
is his obsession with Sigma and Foveon. I haven't had any
complaints over there, you MORON!
