I feel really crappy that I finally got the chance to interact with you on the board and I end up looking like an ignorant person. I really try to be open-minded and I just couldn't feel worse about this. At any rate, I have nothing but the highest respect for you and your films. You set a higher standard in many ways and whatever works for you personally is what matters. PLEASE keep coming to the boards, I know we all appreciate it.
