We pick up on each other's writing styles, personal interests, and can usually gauge with a fair amount of accuracy how the other will likely respond to certain topics before they weigh in.
We tend to do all this without ever knowing anything about their corporeal self. Despite this limited view of the complete person we get to experience a very pure form of the person's thoughts without certain societal biases or soma being a factor.
I didn't always agree with jragosta but he did make this forum a better place in which to build upon, reinforce, or completely reject preconceived notions about the direction of technology.
This is what a good debater brings to a forum and jragosta — along with many others here I respect — have taught me a great deal over the past 6 years. Not just about Apple, or consumer electronics, or technology, but also about many other tangential topics that oft transpired; as well as teaching me to parley more effectively with frequent, and sometimes heated, discussions.
Thank you, jragosta, your presence will be missed.
