Kendra, what on earth are you talking about? David Blumberg's response
to Antoine Clark's original posting could not have been more polite.
He did mention that the clarinet on which Combs played probably added
little to his brilliant abilities, but what on earth caused you to
come to the conclusion that it was "slam[ming] each other for not
beleiving in the same things..."?

Did you really read both the original posting and David's response
to it thoroughly before you dashed off your ill-thought-out views
and created controversy where there was none before?
