There was nothing 'apparent' about it. He made a clear pronouncement
what he considered to be better and worse roleplaying. Personaly I
don't think this is an appropriate forum for insulting people's style
of play. I've got taboos about things like that, yes.

There is a difference between saying "I prefer roleplaying using method X"
and "I am a better roleplayer than you because I use method X".

I will quite happily discuss this in private email, since I can understand
if this is getting tedious.
