Sam's renowned expertise, devotion and staggering amount of spare time is
not questioned here. His bedside manners may, however, sometimes be a little
rough on the edges. Having said that, I sometimes get the feeling that Mr
Goldwasser runs out of patience after answering the same basic/trivial
questions for zillions of years and that his replies can be misconstrued,
for they are always very to-the-point.
For having been at the receiving end of his commentary on a few occasions, I
speak from experience. I may add that I would never have answered back, out
of respect for his generosity.
Being published in Poptronics or its predecessors does not preclude a little
courtesy for newbies.
