Too much champagne? A guy (XL) is sometimes off topic and I don't always 
agree with his postings - if I find the subject somewhat worthy, I usually 
skim through it, this is how I have found myself knee deep in this 
strange exchange between XL's supporters and opponents. And his website is 
big like a magazine and full of strange, sometimes not interesting or hard 
to assess stuff (it needs time to read and time is hard to find nowadays). 
But sometimes, what he writes is informative, too. A bit redundant but 
still, I would give him a small "plus", rather than "zero" or "minus".

But I do not remember him being blunt or agressive.
