You have encountered Peter at his most snotty arch-traditional best...
I think you just illustrated one of the big problems with OCnet: what you just posted is perfectly acceptable coming from you, and yet if I or another traditional Catholic said that about you we would never get away with it.
In short, it isn't a level playing field. I'd say very few of the Orthodox posters want it to be a level playing field, because they want neo-conservative Catholics to have the advantage.
The "problem" with you and J Michael is your problem...
When did Christ ever promise "a level Playing Field"...Did he come to level fields?...Citation please!!
C'mon. You talked down your nose to J Michael and it was not pretty and it was for NOTHING but your own opinions and attitudes which are not upheld by your own Church.
Given the nature of this forum, I would be pretty pointless for me to try to defend myself. I am optimistic, however, that there's a sizable minority of Orthodox posters who are open-minded enough to see what's going on around here.
I honestly do not know what you are talking about. After weeks and weeks, you show up announcing that traditional Catholics have bad deal on OC.net.
I don't know what traditional Catholic means to you? I don't understand the labels that are used in Catholic circles. I think most of the label makers are not particularly good Catholics at a number of levels...so I never have paid much attention to them.
Then you jump all over J Michael so when I told you what I thought I used the label that you gave yourself...I don't care what you are or call yourself. But IF you call yourself something, don't get all bent out of shape if people hold you to it.
