Maybe he lost his famous temper with the wrong person?
I can understand anyones lack of patience with unenlightened comments like that !!

Unenlightened? Wow. I guess it must be more enlightened to be out of touch with reality and hurl judgements at people when you don't have a clue. Bravo! I bow down to your obviously superior enlightenment! Will you teach me, master?
Tony has helped so many people with Cad coding. I would rather have my tails ruffled a little and get the answer than get nowhere. So thanks Tonyfor all the help you have given me and others and I hope you are doing ok.
By no means do I intend to detract from Tony's accomplishments.
But, he can be... extremely abrasive... if he doesn't like somebody else's opinion. Sort of like somebody else who has replied here.
I believe in karma, so it shouldn't be unreasonable that I made a comment in that vein regarding Tony's absence. Take it for what it is... sarcastic humor. But, keep in mind that I apparently have not yet reached enlightenment.
Stop flickering here, please
Whether it will be a shame on you then with your words if
(God bless ) with Tony there was something bad?
I can't help but notice the .NET forum here is *much* more active without him. While his depth of knowledge is certainly missed, his attitude prevented the width of discussion we currently see, allowing others to ask questions freely and answer the questions of others without being berated.
I have done a quick search or two and nothing has turned up. It may be he has decided to "unplug" for a while.
Sorry I have disagree
Without this great programmer there is no theory
in these *wide* discussions, all other you can see
When I think of Tony, I think of all the bullies who attack people because doing so makes the bully feel less small.
I have to agree that the boards have a better 'air' about them without the worry of being picked on by the 'popular guy'. It's too bad we can't separate the helpful, knowledgeable person from the bully. I wish him the best, whatever his current situation, but I don't desire his return.
Hallex, do you truly think that Tony was the only person who understood and talked theory here??
