Sometimes this causes great emotional distress and they lash out. I would be delighted to have you convince me that my understanding of swing mechanics is wrong because that would mean I had learned something I needed to know. Right now, Mike and Jack make good sense to me along with Tom. Tell me where they are wrong. I look forward with an open mind to your response.

> Sergio,
> I love to discuss mechanics with linear proponents or any kind of believer in whatever mechanics. Furthermore, Jack, from what I see on this board, is a complete gentleman of IMMENSE patience who suffers fools much longer than I would. I'm not saying you are in that group, but there have been some and Jack was patient to a fault. As far as aggressive arguers, this is an open discussion board. If you have thin skin, the internet is not the place for you. On this site though, facts and logic are respected. Stubborness and long held beliefs that the holder cannot logically defend are not.
> Mark H.

I repeat: people like you are my gripe. See how defensive you have become? If someone says something that hurts your feelings, this is a sample of some of the things you say: "they lash out", "suffers fools", "thin skin","the internet is not the place for you","Stubborness". You have no clue as to what you are arguing for or against. All you know is that someone hurt your feelings. And then you are amazed that at eteamz they referred to you as a joke?

Obviously my assesment was correct: in Jack's zeal to protect this site from the pranksters and troublemakers (which he has both a right and an obligation to do), he has allowed individuals such as yourself to hijack the original goal of "free and open discussion" and convert the site into a platform to spread the gospel of top hand torque.

Do you here the laughter in the background, Mark H? That is the laughter of major league ball players and instructors . It's not just a case where they have heard your message and disagree. They have heard your message and are laughing at you.
