I think I've made my thoughts on the matter quite clear, giving specific reasons I don't feel that iamaddj's opinion was valid, but will recognize him for being a surprisingly good sport :). Other's have said that it doesn't matter if his opinion is good or bad, it's sparking a discussion. These people will then reference the now 500+ comments on the original BoLS article. Comment count is all well and good, but much like post count in a forum, it doesn't necessarily indicate validity or show that people are thinking. One needs to actually go and read the comments to see what type of discussion is going on. Dive into that thread and you're going to mostly see people trolling each other and making fun of the post. Great discussion there. Now a few people do agree with the OP and voice some concern about the rule. Again, I made my points very clear regarding slowing the game down, being realistic, etc so I will just say that everyone is entitled to their own dumbass, wrong opinion.
To catch up on the drama Check out the links below. I also understand that TKE will soon be making his triumphant return to blogging after his holiday (or vacation if you speak American) with a never before seen quadruple snowmobile of the offending post. I think a new name is warranted for this feat. I suggest the triple Lindy.
Kirby snowmobiles iamaddj
Mkerr snowmobiles the lot of them
...and to answer your impending question, no I don't know what FNIF is going to be yet. I probably won't decide until right before I publish it.
