I liked THE BARON. Yes, he was frequently crude in his posts, but never false or just being politically correct. He had a real POV and sometimes a good point to make, which more conventional POVs overlooked. I can not be sure, but think he was often sincere in some things I strongly opposed him in - especially his support of local funding of school in contrast for my desire to see all have equal oportunity for a good education. (We could discuss this as I was not basing my POV on some liberal "do gooders" morality - that made him sick - but on the economic damage the loss of good brains causes, especially when instead of making society better, they are used to deal drugs etc. without getting caught.) If he is just banded, and still walking around above ground - I am strongly for lifting that ban.
