That sucker seems to have finally petered out on the ZRXOA but not before 45 pages and 1330+ posts. :crazy:
Last number of pages were the same two guys making the same two arguments - with nobody listening.
Think they wanted to push it to 50 pages but just got tired. :\

Congratulations, you folks got past that one a whole lot faster :biggrin:

That little issue is doing the rounds on quite a few forums I use! Same outcome on all of them.

Personally I think it's one of those problems where the question is so abstract that there isn't a technically right or wrong answer...

Possible answers:

A. It will fly.
B. It won't fly.
C. A fish.

Answer is C.

To be truthfull i only started it to see if it would go as far as the yanks, but it sort of died the death, given the strong opinons lately i thought a few more would argue the point?
