I agree we should cut Gern a little slack, but at the same time I, nor anyone else I personally know, caused GH any harm.
There is an ever-increasing tendency to blame the world's problems on everyone except the "fuck-ups" who cause the afore-mentioned problem. Wanna blame someone? Blame the perpetrator...and no-one else. Certainly not GH for being reasonably successful.
Just my $.02 worth.
