That's just it Bernard, we are not of a common goal. As I have alluded to in the past, what was once a single hobby or past time has evolved into two very different things completely. These two pursuits (lets not label them or sing the priases of one over another) are based in entirely different goals and mindsets. We don't call these arguments us vs. us fights, we call them us vs. them. Clearly we are not the same pursuit as we once were. Comparing the two different hobby paradigms is an apples and oranges issue. These sorts of arguments are about as effective as a model railroader arguing with a guy who plays golf.
