    [Sinistral]: I think that just the sight of his username now causes a downvote storm. I agree, and the gratuitous use of formatting does make reading hard. I've given him +1 on things where there seemed to be actual good advice, but I think the big
    [Sinistral]: nail in coffin was the rant against a Schwarzian Transform
