Were I honest I find Jumpman's response to be quite unsportsman like or perhaps more relevant to Pokemon unscholarly. Surely the essence of the battle subway is to test viable options and strive towards an invincible team that can handle the myriad of options that the subway has to offer. This being the case, someone who would act with hostility to someone who questions the invincibility of a team is just immature, and then to sling more personal insults is just silly.
This thread benefits from the diversity that your records and insights bring, it needs more people like you who query other peoples records and then use that critism constructively in order to create a better team.
I agree with this (even more of a lurker though). Each person's contribution should be valued, and if it differs with someone else's, then instead of one person being wrong, they have had different experiences, particularly in relation to subjective things like fun.
And there is definitely no need to become confrontational.
I hope that you return at least once, ntrnsc mtvtn. Please don't think everyone disagrees with you, and please don't remove the records of the acheivements that you've won.
EDIT: Also, forums are a flawed way of communicating, and it's good for both people to give each other leeway when responding.
