Yes, you certainly are, BD.

My demand for sources is generally concerned with on-topic posts:  when
folks make a blanket statement that, for instance, the 2/5cm collapsible
Sonnar will "outperform", say, the 2/5cm Voigtl?nder Skopar on the
Prominent, I want more than someone's word for this -- it might well be
true, but I would appreciate some independent evidence beyond anecdote.

On off-topic issues, especially those political, I operate to a far lower

Perhaps I should start demanding sources for the rather absurd claims on
political matters which you occasionally make, BD?

If you ARE that interested in the issue, may I suggest that YOU do a Google
search:  +747 +Iraq +shell  or something along those lines.

Now, if this were a political list, I'd be on your side.  But demanding
sources on something as grossly off-topic as this on a camea nad
photography list is more than a bit absurd.  Let us end this foolishness
and get back to photography, digital or chemical.

Let it die, BD.
