Publish the voting of this thread and the truth will come screaming out about what I am talking about.

No, I will not publish any voting records because voting records have never been published. That is understood. But regardless of who voted for what, how would that be any evidence of an old boys club?

What if I were to tell you that I was the one that voted your original post "-1 Overrated?" What would that prove? Simply that I believe that your post was overrated, perhaps because it looks to be like a lot of copy/paste about a microcontroller that the original poster wasn't even asking about.

In fact, you've pretty will driven this entire thread off-topic, Charles. First by suggesting a DS89C420 as an answer to "looking for a '251 board", then we pretty much all followed your lead by talking about fast 8052s, and now we're talking about your pet theory of an old boys club based on God only knows what assumptions. And the original poster, Henry, still doesn't seem any closer to finding a '251 board.

If you'd like to continue this disussion, Charles, take it to the chat board--that's what it's there for. I'll be happy to discuss this with you all day long if you'd like. But I'm going to ask that all future comments in this vain be posted there, not here where they are definitely off-topic and, as Erik correctly pointed out, a perfect example of violating the tenth forum rule.
