    Perhaps he actually quit c9 this time.

    A terrible shame, for I will truly miss his insightful praise of the .NET architecture. Tongue Out

    Stop getting so dramatic. He's only been off since Saturday.

    I know I'm being a jerk, but I'm surprised that someone is missing Beer.

    Not so much "miss" as "wonder".

    I actually like that he helps keep me informed of what the competition is doing.  I'm not really all that interested in getting just a Microsoft view of the world, I'd rather know which direction the innovation might be coming from next.

    Sure he had the occassional habit of trailing off into 6 or 7 continuous posts talking to himself and ranting about Mandrake, but sometimes he was informative.

    I had an offline email conversation with Beer about thread hijacking and frequent orthogonal posting behavior. He decided that he'd rather not participate at all than tone done his too frequent and invasive rhetorical semantics. Note that I in no way encouraged him to abandon the community. Rather, I let him know that I appreciated having a strong alternative view point on Channel 9. Respect, like security in software, outweighs everything else...

    Looks like a pre-sneeze emoticon. I guess sneezing can be emotional. Smiley

    Yes, but they're not that good. Are you calling me a liar? Smiley

    Frequent orthogonal posting behavior means posting ideas which are clearly not related to the thread's topic(s).

    I'm sorry to see him go also but I'm sure he'll be back. 

    He's probably reading this post right now planning a big comeback in a few days or weeks.

    I will add the notion of sarcasm to my thread parser and map it correctly in my reply engine.

    Processing...
