Unless you have evidence to the contrary, just assume I'm right and you're wrong. Things will be simpler that way.

Your mistake was expecting wargame discussion on that site.

Inquisitive minds want to know whether you got dawghoused for that last comment.

I scrolled down for ages. It seems to be a discussion about rating generals inn wargames, so not sure what point you are trying to make.  Confused

I asked where I could get a list of ratings for wargames.
I got a discussion on
1) Why it is wrong to rate generals
2) Systems to do it!

Yanks are in bed at the moment, expecting some blowback re the 'interview'.  RTFQ!

Which is pretty much what would have happened on this, or probably any other, forum on the interweb.

In fact the Pendraken responses would have gone much more wildly off-topic and someone would have been called an oik by now.

Last Hussar, I thought it was going quite well until your comment!

and it doesn't help this forum bringing TMP woes here.

sorry to be blunt.

Iain Dickie and Gareth Harding wrote rules called Colours & Guns for 10mm napoleonic, published by Magister Militum.

it has army lists together with listings of character generals, examples;

Bagration, reckless in attack - command rating 9 - attribute,+1 to all his colonels attempting to charge. He cannot have an ADC if Bennigsen is C & C.

Tolstoy, good infantry commander - command rating 8 - attribute, +1 In command of infantry.

Yes I can, but why do you bother with TMP?

I donít really understand why you seem so irritated. No one was unpleasant, or rude, they just posted what they felt about the topic you raised. Should other posters be constrained only to post exactly what you require?  Isnít that a bit egotistical? I have seen far, far worse threads on TMP!
