That was my point from the beginning, but it seems some people are VERY
passionate that there is only one way to post.
Why it's such a big deal to them, I'll never know, but some people don't seem
able to accept that different people do things differently.

As one of the original posters (and with a few other posts), it was never
interesting. It went almost immediately from looking at different points of
view to several people stating, in some cases, with strong anger, that there
is only one right way, and everyone else is wrong.
It reminds me of the church school I had to teach in while I was getting my
certification. A few people listened to different points of view, the rest
went around shouting at the top of their lungs how they were right, the rest
were wrong, and anyone who didn't listen to them and do it there way was
doomed to hell.
