that's fair. as a dick-waving humblebragger myself, i gave him a pass, but i understand why others would not. what is this nebulous definition of 'advocate' that he is violating? it's become the "no true scotsman" of the beer world. if you had heard the story from the recipient of his generosity ("omg playaplaya extra'ed me a bottle of bcbcs" or "playaplaya heard i got shut out so he sold me a bottle at cost"), no one would be berating him. where do you think those bottles to trade / share / extra come from? some guy getting to the store before you / chadquest / whomever.
