Nahh.  Perhaps I should clarify.  Basic philosphy:

  "Look at me!" school yard chest thumping is unwelcome.  Generic
trolls, put-downs, and other forms of cowed get-backs are unwelcome. 
Interested discussion of relevant points, good and bad, of systems are
especially welcome.  

  I expect you to be proud of your own systems.  I expect that pride
to show in your posts.  I would be dissappointed if that pride were
*not* shown in your posts.  This does not mean "Better than you, so
Nyahh!" schoolyard bully pride, this means, "I think we did a really
incredibly good job, and here's why...".  I realise that you are
unlikely to either point out or overly willingly admit the glaring
design flaws in your systems.  I don't expect that of uour
non-commercial members until their noses are rubbed in it either.
