Gosh, Greg, seems your nerves were touched as well. Not sure what you meant by the 'based on the flames' comment, but I see no flames in this thread at all.
Also not sure why you're so opposed to the usefulness of a hammock forum on this site. There are certainly non-hammocking 'heavies' on BPL, and they post to the forums. There are folks like me, who don't claim to be SUL or even completely UL, who post on these forums, and for the most part, get along quite well with those who do favor the SUL/UL approach.
Your reasoning (not you personally, your reasoning in this thread applied to others) has led to quite heated exchanges in other threads about guns and hunting and myriad other things. I've never quite understood the point of all that.
I'm not sure anyone would insist we only garner the light ones anyway. Quite simply, I believe hammocking on this site would lead to discussions on making such backpacking lighter -- those who balked would get the same treatment as other 'heavies' do on this site - a reminder (sometimes nice, sometimes not so much) that this site is first and foremost about being lighter, if not lightweight.
So, gee, lighten up......
