I've let this thread slip by and haven't read it from about post 1095 or so, but I need to say this...
An opinion I shared about Dane success was taken out of context in that it was a reason some people didn't like him. What I meant was people had tried to pile on him BECAUSE of his success, and he just never backed down, which other people found to be abrasive in the way he defended himself.
Dane has never been anything but super cool with me, even on stuff we disagreed about. Never had any kind of problems with him, ever.
