Molly - As a newcomer, not knowing the history of everyone here, I was speaking out of my depth. When I said I didn't understand Trapper, I was being sincere, it wasn't rhetorical.
Knowing Trapper's reputation of pushing the limits, as you point out, it just seemed baffling to me that he seemed to be siding with someone that was rebuking this forum for it's spirit of experimentation. If these forums were film makers, the OP forum would be Disney and the Iodine maybe Tarrentino. And it seemed to me for a minute that we had Tarrentino siding with Tipper Gore against Disney. (My analogies are getting a lot more colorful - must be the iodine).
Apologies if I read too much into this - which I apparently have.
