Thanks, not so polite, but still refreshing in a way ...
It bothers me that this Lloyd might be confused with our Lloyd!
Maybe he forgot his meds?
All it is is the flip side of the Leica worship one often (or usually) sees.
I just wasted five minutes of my life...
Do we care? If it works for you, great! If not, move on.
Sacred cows only exist in the minds and hearts of those who wish to shoot them down.
I like it :-) and he is right
I re-read it. I have no problem with the language but I also just dont understand what he means. Maybe because english is not my native language.
I think making the MM without a red dot is a clever move. Now nobody can say that I paid part of the money for my MM just for the red dot.
I'm glad that I did not pay to read his crap. I can assume that the rest of the site is just as professional.

That's the problem with small sample size. You read one of a thousand posts and decide the other 999 are crap.
I can see deciding not to read Lloyd based on a single post; you could conclude that his style is not your cup of tea. But that's not much of a basis for deciding that he's unprofessional. There are posters here who intentionally stir things up, and I don't read much of what they have to say, but that doesn't mean that they don't know anything.
I agree. It's the kind of thing I might say in a private rant, but wouldn't write in an internet forum, and certainly not on my own website.
I'm a lawyer, and I often say things about judges, but not to the judges.

No disrespect to anyone, but I have real differences on his computer testing methodology. Just not reality-based.
As far as I am concerned his rant just was more of the same but in more colorful language.
Sometimes a sample size of one say more about the person than all the others combined. Either the old "showing his true colors" comes across in this post, or at least a complete lack of respect for anyone reading the blog.
I was on Lloyds site for a while and on Reids site. I am no longer on either. With Lloyd I could count on his opinions being right on, with Reid his not so much. If he got pissed becasue he could not find the perfect product more power to him. Reid well he loved lenses that to me were crap the 50 voitlander and 15 voigt, felt like my time and energy were wasted. I have never had a bad piece of advice form lloyd. the onluy thing I was a miss about was I have no problem focusing leica M 9's
