Don't give me that crap, Tim.
By nature, I'm a skeptic. I think for myself.
I've already explained many times my thoughts on Roy.

I think Paul Thurott is more loony than Roy is, and Moshe, DFS, and even
Hadron exceed Roy in lunacy, and are certainly often way more unpleasant
than Roy, who generally responds with a light touch even when provoked
(alleged castration threats aside).
I would much rather Roy be posting, and suffer some inaccurate links,
lame quips <grin>, and even some tin-foil hat material, than have to
read the rantings, insults, and outright lies posted by many others
Roy's biggest problem is that he is digging into Microsoft dirt, and
hence attracts ad hominem attacks from unpleasant munchkins who won't
flinch from mud-slinging in defense of Microsoft's dominance.
And, like most of us, he makes mistakes or goes too far from time to
time, which makes the attacks easier.
