Why not just forgo the drama? Big deal - everyone is entitled to their opinions. A professional often gets bored with this kind of stuff and sometimes can't help but comment in a way that seems controversial. If anything, what the big guy said was a little rude, ok maybe rude, ok maybe a lot rude, depending on your sensitivity, but again, so what?
If you ask me he's just having some fun, or like another poster said, got up on the wrong side of the bed or whatever and just couldn't take the ambiguity of the question which is often asked without much thought behind it. So perhaps his reaction was knee-jerk response. Isn't he allowed to be human as well?
Take it easy, let it go, move on and glean good information from those who are answering the OP's question.
Personally, I am learning from the thread, and not just about what might piss Jeff off, LOL... at least the OP didn't ask: "What's your favorite PS version", or who's your favorite photographer "rock star", or "Do you use floor finish to finish your canvasses, and if so, which is your favorite"? heh heh...
Try a little humor!
PS my answers would be: None, none, none...
