I know we have some professional writers hanging around here, including show writers, and maybe a few other professional Trekveterans are lurking around as well.
In the history of TrekBBS, has any member made a major faux pas? Say for example, ridiculing a particular episode's script, or tearing down an actor's performance, or criticizing a particular special effect, or lambasting one of the many novels, and the individual being trashed then stands up to make a devastating yet elegantly phrased reply, after which the accuser is so thoroughly humiliated he never darkens the door again?
I'd guess sometimes pros might want to do something like that, but manage to restrain themselves more often than they'd like.
I am not asking anyone to reveal themselves.
