I have to smile every time I reread this subject line.  "like a pro"   Love that.

The KR subject reminds me of back in the early days of the internet newsgroups (1980s) whenever there was a long discussion and someone would say that's like Nazi Germany or Hitler, it became a joke that that was the end of rational discussion.  People would just sometimes reply to a post and write "Hitler. Discussion over."

Reminds me of the use of KR's name in photography forums.  But obviously I'm not implying any connection between them, just the effect it has on the discourse.
