Just to chime in on the subject, Oleg, I think you're a tool as well.
My first impression of Oleg was hearing him talk about how he felt fine punishing the German player in a head-to-head game because the Axis player was obviously stupid in how he functioned in command of the German army. THEN he played the German side. It wasn't enough to say he was wrong (which arguably he did... arguably). He then went on to eclipse the rational winter debate with Veruka Salt "I want it NOW!" whining of a schoolgirl.

Let me know if you want to do a PBEM game. I might re-instill your faith in the community. I try to teach people what I've learned of supply, because as any Operational game player knows: "Amateurs discuss tactics, professionals discuss logistics" or something like that.
Most of the community is actually really great. Heck, I've been asked to rein in my wayward commentaries on a couple of occasions. I'll probably be asked again in this one. What can I say: I come from the fine American tradition of calling someone who is an a$$ in public an a$$ in public.
Some of the threads you should just stay away from for a while when they get hot, anyhow, unless you have strong opinions.
