I don't think anyone is saying they're not worth having or won't work just as a good as a Fisher, just their opinion/preference, no reason to be offended. The stove I used growing up isn't anywhere on-line, probably made in someones garage and it heated our house fine, but I wouldn't be surprised if there's not much of a following, or if it isn't engineered as well as other stoves. A Fisher or All Nighter is completely obsolete compared to the newer stoves anyways, it would be like getting offended that the rotary phone you used growing up was called 2nd rate compared to another brand. I think Coaly provided evidence to back up every opinion he listed, even providing pictures. Of course you can disagree, if nobody ever disagreed there would be no innovation or new technology (or good conversation in my opinion) but there's no need to attack anyone personally.
