The idea that you apparently think we're lynching Mikhail leads me to believe that you're horrified at the idea that your amp has no resale value. Way to attempt to drag the rest of us down with you
Uh, dude, if you read the post I was referencing, it appears to say that if a person makes a mistake with one person (e.g., a surgeon accidentally cuts off one person's testicles) and doesn't confess it, that means that person is a scumbag and should not be allowed to engage in that occupation. Thus, I was commenting on the 1% error rate (with the assumption that lots of folks make bad mistakes at some time in their life and don't always admit to them). Perhaps I misread the intital post. Or perhaps you did. But I think my post made it clear how I interpreted it.
I don't really care that my amp has no resale value (this is a little bit presumptious, probably reflecting your desires, but whatever), as I have no intention of selling it. I just think that, while it's clear that Mikhail has done some really bad things, and there should be consequences, people are engaging in a lot of hyperbole, and are being extremely judgmental, in certain of the comments. And that fact that you take my comment as indicating that I am worried about my amps resale value -- as if you are some armchair psychiatrist -- sort of demonstrates my point. People are losing perspective and getting quite emotional about all this.
And if you think my opinion is "asinine," so be it.
