His opinions (i refuse to call it advice) are extremely dangerous and most 
often outright wrong, someone needs to keep reminding the newbies this so
they don't make the same mistakes he clearly does.

The list archives show who's helpful and who never to listen to, I wont 
say remind karl hes wrong, because, well, you'd get more attention and 
acknowledgment from wet grass than him, if karl, or anyone for that 
matter, gives advice you feel is wrong, you have every right to step in 
with the right or more appropriate advice, as a community we all have 
that right, sometimes someones advice may be good, but yours may be 
better, and two (or more) people will benefit from your suggestion.

As one who is detested by most because i don't tolerate the self appointed 
net cops dictating and bullying others as to how they must act in here, I 
cant say I've seen you say anything that'd be unfair.

never defend your position, there will always be list nazis who will wish 
you were gone, killfile you, or do whatever else those insecure self
centered people do, if its not you they are disliking, it'll be someone 
else, so ignore them, they are just not worth it and in the end, they 
will be the losers, not you.
