In fairness, the response ("go play with the children on vogons or the VCF forum if you feel that way") is specifically directed at the forum, not VCF as a whole.  I'm not going to wade into whether *that* was justified (the forum isn't for me, but that's just a matter of preference, and I'm not gonna trash it), but it didn't seem like he was aiming directly at the organization overall.

That said, cctalk became such a zoo that when I was accidentally auto-bounced from it a number of years ago because of mail server issues, I never signed back up and don't feel particularly bad about it.

Every forum (in the more generic sense of the word) has people who like it and who don't (and plenty who are just "meh").  Might be nice if he weren't so dismissive, but here we are.
