Alfie got his butt kicked because almost everyone hated his photographs and 
he was charging Fifth Avenue money for them. It was his mixture of attitude 
and artistic sensibility that got him nailed to the drying rack.  If you can 
get past the anonymous thing, Freak's postings are literate, witty, spelled 
properly, and gentle.

I haven't seen anyone criticize Mr Freak here; that bit about the grassy 
knoll was a joke. I was initially torqued about Mr Freak because I don't 
normally permit anonymous LUG members (probably 120 foot-pounds) but I'm 
good with it now. On the other hand, I'd LOVE to see some of his photos.
