Florian, I couldn't care less about your opinions regarding me, the
equipment I use or my comments. In addition, I don't care for you. I
don't want to know who you are, what you actually do for a living nor
how good you are at this sport. Why? First of all, you're attitude
which is rather common and obvious, doesn't make you stand out in a
croud. Second, I don't know how you came to think of me as Bruce as
I've never put that name up on this forum or given it to you. I gave
Dan Weiss my true name in a private e-mail, but he seems to think it
better to use Bruce when addressing me here. Maybe you picked it up
from reading his posts. However, I find it a bit ingratiating that you
use it. Third, I wonder if you have any experience with Loft sails.
You certainly haven't given your opinions here. You seem more
interested in discrediting mine by offering personal slurs and
belittlement. Forth, I have no idea why Kevin's prototypes should come
up in a discussion about the Loft Lip. Whatever, don't expect me to
read any more of your non-sense.
