Re: Has there ever been a gaffe on the board?

Are we speaking only of gaffes made by professionals, or gaffes against professionals as well?

A couple of years ago, I remarked on how the TOS Enterprise is a timeless design that follows classic proportions while the Enterprise-D is ugly and malproportioned. I suppose my tone was a bit condescending. Turned out I was replying to Andrew Probert, the guy who designed the Enterprise-D. (I wasn't paying particular attention to usernames.)

It was a bit like instructing Beethoven on how to write a symphony.

(BTW, I still think the Enterprise-D is ugly.)
