I am begniing to wonder what motivates our little mascot.\n\nSince we all now have a perfect understanding of the technology, maybe\na digression into psychology and mental illness would be good........\n\nPossible explanations:\n\n1. He really believes what he is saying, and feels that he has a\nmission to share his knowledge and insight. He writes really well, so\nit's a bit hard to comprehend how he could be so stupid.\n\n2. Someone is paying him (certainly not Sigma or Foveon...;) ).\nThis seems unlikely, since they could get sued for slandering the\nFoveon technology.\n\n3. He is an egomaniac who thrives on the attention. If so, he\nwill go away only when we stop arguing with him-\-\-or when he exhausts\nhimself.\n\n4. Because of some mental disorder, he cannot accept that he made\na mistake in buying his SD-9. The defense mechanism is to delude\nhimself that he made the right decision, and EVERYONE ELSE is wrong\n\nAny other theories?? Any mental health professionals out there care\nto have crack at this?\n**************************\nMark Herring, Pasadena, Calif.\nPrivate e-mail: Just say no to "No".
