I know it's nice to be thought of as a "valued and respected" member of a forum, but in the grand scheme of things - not all that important. I've fallen off that perch myself from time to time. But as long as I feel I'm doing the right thing - I don't think it matters too much whether others support what I write or attack it. And if I feel I've stuffed up - I'm happy to say so. The main thing is not to respond to attacks that are over the top or plain abusive. It takes two to have a fight. Don't be the second person.
