Yes, I understand what you mean about nickb2 going "off topic". However, he is also one of the most reliable sources of help here. He is patient in helping people work through some of the most complicated problems; posting schematics, TSBs, trouble-shooting guides from manuals, etc. The odd stuff he posts is fairly harmless. He never blasts anybody personally. My opinion is that the benefit of having him participate here far out-weighs any annoyance from the "gibberish" posts he makes.
