No worries. I probably over reacted myself.
As far as culture. What triggers me lately is the idea that every thread or topic has to come back to fit into a pro-Ballard or non-pro-Ballard view. Seems like readers are looking through the content of posts to gauge what the potential view of Ballard is.
Its nice to have discussions about the team or organization without having to wring it through a Ballard angle all of the time. And that view is the sole responsibility of the reader, IMO.
