    No, I noticed that as well. Maybe he's just come to realise how charming and wonderful we all are, and decided to try and get along?

    Anyone want to join the Society?

A lot of it is, I think, acquired communication skills and word choice in the way that you post what you post, coming across as authoritative but not arrogant when you make claims or assertions, and being accomodating and not simply state/restating when discussing.

    For example...

    "Granted, the match-winning innings that Dalton played at Wellington in 2002 was a fine example of batting under pressure - not many people can make those kinds of scores with a middle-order and tail committing hara-kiri around them, but there has been little else in his career to back up your claim that he's one of the world's best batsman.

    If, for example, you look at the ODI series in Sri Lanka the year after - there were two or three times where he played very rash, injudicious shots when the onus was on him to remain unbeaten and see the team to victory in the games. His disproportionately high ratio of dismissals in single figures also suggests a weakness early in his innings"

    contrasted against...

    "rubbish. one innings doesnt make dalton a good batsman even if that innings was good and on that i would disagree entirely because the bowlers bowled short and wide too often and the wicket was flatter than others he has failed repeatedly on. in sri lanka he was nothing but useless and probably cost the game and series because he was unable to play anything other than that idiot hoik shot off the leg spinner and got stumped twice and caught off skiers so many other times. no one who bats like that can even be thought of as good never mind great"
    I just can't imagine you posting the latter... I mean, I've never used that sort of "poor communication skills" as you put it... with referance particularly to the grammar.

    Also, I believe among the people I listed that Jono is much closer to the age group you mentioned than late 20s/early 30s, since he started uni this year.
    Yeah, I thought he was, too. I didn't actually include him in the late-20s\early-30s group.
    Maybe you didn't consciously select the people you did based on their age but I'm almost certain it had an impact, because so often it does, even if you don't realise it.

    Yeah, I'm astounded that he doesn't have the will to post more; I always make sure I read an article whenever he writes one.
    He and SJS have much in common.
    Speaking of C_C....

    Am I the only one to notice it, but is it me or has C_C pulled his head in a bit of late? He's obviously a clever chap, that much was evident from day one, but I had him down as a bit of a head-of-the-d1ck because he was a victim of the "My opinion is bigger than your opinion & here's a point-by-point refutation of your opinion" cod-macho posturing that can occasionally afflict Cricket Chat (& that we all find so desperately tiresome).

    Lately tho, while still opinionated, he seems less aggressive & altogether more chilled (maybe he's getting laid! ). His post on Sehwag was one of the best I'd seen for some time.
    However many improvements C_C has made I can't ever think too much of him while he uses the strategem he uses to dismiss the older cricketing feats; it's just too typical of subcontinentals and while it's original and one I've not heard before, it's fundamentally flawed and contains many things where he states that things are not the way they are (ie that learned opticians believe the human eye can accurately gauge speed and relative speed of objects; that cricket was not professional, in attitude or in actuality, before the mid-60s; and that cricket's embryonic stage was the 1930s).

    You either don't take interest in the past part eras of the game (not a crime, don't take that the wrong way) or haven't heard C_C's ideas about it, then.
