I never minded Jesse. His love of theatre came through.
Michael was another story. Knowledgeable as he was, he resented it terribly if you knew something he didn’t and would rather accuse you of not knowing what you’re talking about than graciously accept that he didn’t know everything. After a few unpleasant exchanges I usually avoided his posts, but periodically would read him demand that a poster who disagreed with his opinions justify theirs. This happened not long before he disappeared and I wondered if he didn’t indeed get the boot. Either that or he tired of everyone else’s inferiority.
