OK, let's see. Another case of Phil's massively-distorted world view.
Ahh, we have some excellent data this holiday weekend to work with.
Here're your areas of activity as far as I can tell,
"Austin Instruments to Close" - 127 articles
"How to Cheat in Debates" - 41
"Wombat's Revenge" - 54
"Goodbye, Dear Boy" - 31
"Choosing the right transformer" - 46
"Personal Insults, ruin newsgroups" - 34
"I am not Phil Allison" - 14
The above threads are Filled with sheer C*@^$P.
Here're my recent conversations,
"Simple adjustable 0 - 400V regulator, with flaw" - 73 articles
"Prof Searle's 100MHz 30dB 1968-era 3-trannie amplifier" - 69
"Transistor amplifiers v. frequency in SPICE" - 116
"frequency to voltage converter" - 20
"jellybean audio transistors" - 10
"Don't do this! Just don't!" - 61
"Is this chip suitable for video signal switching?" - 7
"searching for a pulse rate sensor" - 18
"Strange behaviour - core saturation puzzle" - 12
Those are highly-active threads that I either started and/or made a
substantial contribution to. They're filled with interesting and
informative technical material, references, part numbers, drawings,
measurements, spice plots, the works.
We discussed high-voltage regulators, high-frequency transistors and
amplifier configurations, opamp stabilization, F-V converters, zero-
adjust circuits, spice analysis, component selection, and magnetics.
A few of the threads are short, because an desired answer was quickly
and accurately supplied. Some of the others are long, because there
was much to learn and explore. So I'll stand on the record there.
I had fun this weekend, plus I got some work done, because one of
the threads elegantly solved a problem I was struggling with when I
left work last Friday. This morning I'll apply the changes and my
week will be off to a good start, thanks in part to some hanging
out here. Can you say that?
> All I> can remember is flaming, and not very good at that.
There were no flames AFAICS in any the 386 articles mentioned above.
I'm no flamer, and would expect to be rather poor at it if I tried.
By contrast, I'll not count, but you've probably spewed 386 flames all
by yourself lately, and invited an equal number in return no doubt.

My missus? As it happens, she has no knowledge of the name Bill Sloman
and has no opinion - another sad mistake or worse by Phil Allison.
