The annoying Know-It-All's of the wargaming world

Over the past year, I have been cruising the wargaming forums at BGG, and taking part in various discussions, I have come across some real know-it-all's who seem to think that their opinion is above and correct over any others.

I have just realized my last post was the first for 6 months on here.

First BGG warning - but unsure why?

I wait with baited breath for their reply, but I do not expect anything sensible from them.

Looking for gamers in central Florida (Clearwater area)

Myself and one other board gamer, Steve Askew, are looking for other gamers near the Clearwater area of Florida.  We are fairly experienced gamers who enjoy a wide range of face to face board war gaming.  We are particularly interested in the Operational Combat Series from MMP, and as such are currently exploring their newest jewel, Beyond the Rhine, but have not gotten past September turns yet.   However we are open to other suggestions.

We have a Clearwater location where we can…
