While it is true that the big man & chisel can be abrasive, even hostile, at least they will say it to your face rather than hiding in comment threads.

Yeah, it is jarring to expect a nice reading group and expect to come into it and say whatever bullshit and not get challenged but that was never this group, even way before chisel & big man. I do sometimes wish criticism had not been so harsh, but otoh do you expect real enemies to go easy on you?

That was my contribution perhaps, seeing both sides and trying to find a way to bridge the gap. On the best nights of the asg there was a mix of the nice chat and the intense criticism.
Anyway, here's to a thousand blooming study groups!
