Apologies if you feel any of the comments (mine in particular) have offended but in defense I'd have to say with a lively debate about, what some people perceive as a failure, there will comments in regards to capabilities that may come across as insults.
Would you not agree that it is better to have tried and failed than to never have tried at all?
Sure its sad that Big Time is going, but its been around for about 10 months now. I'm sure most of those sad to see it going have had generally postive experiences with it for the duration that they have been on it. If they hadn't then they wouldn't be sad to see it go =)
