Crankiest LD member contest

Dude, you're so in.  We should do an Oscar style LD awards where we 
have categories and nominations and we could all vote for our favorite 

What Paul doesn't understand is that while we're busy tearing him a new 
asshole, (I hope he can shit faster and spend the extra time he gains 
reading his gear manuals) most others are just rolling their eyes and 
ignoring him.  I get pissed because I'm trying to help someone who 
can't be bothered to read all the helpful posts we've spent a lot of 
time and care writing.  I hope someone's getting something out of all 

That being said, writing about this stuff helps me better understand 
what I myself am doing and gives me new ideas to try, so it's not all 
altruistic.  Most of you guys are amazingly great sources of 
information and I cherish this list because of that.
