No need to take anything on the chin Mickmac. Ali TT's self claimed victory in said discussion was about as convincing as Napoleon and the Grand Armee in Russia.
If you're going to be nice to certain of the members here you will be undoing much hard work and no small amount of considered WUMming. There could be the possibility then, that certain posters will change from an atheist position regarding anything about Aussies in general (and Aussie cricket in particular) being reasonable in any way... to one of Agnosticism (unlikely to make much difference in one particular circumstance).
The fun would then reduce considerably.
Or you could just ignore my advice, take people as you find them and enjoy your time here.
