My knowledge of Lenny (whoever he may be), and James Dixon for that matter, began with this thread, I grant that.
But even allowing for what I don't know, I'm shocked and saddened if a member can be banned for so little.
An intelligent guy who's thought things out (almost to a fault), and who's articulate, should be tolerated for being doctrinaire. I mean, even if you don't buy into his manifesto-like dissertations on starship design, can't he be read for entertainment value?
I was getting a kick out of seeing so much detail on an entirely ficticious subject. If I had known a Lenny when I was 14 and the blueprints were new, I would NEVER have grown up.
