It's all short beer and long putts. :) Hey, no worries my good man, a little reflection on my part tells me I used clouded judgement with how I contextualized the OP, an honest error, but not excusable. My inquiry was sincere, however misguided by my own ineptitude.

Well said.

My own journey began with FOTG, and here I am all these years later disagreeing with quite a lot of it, but still acknowledge the grand inspiration Graham was intent on giving us.
