Definitely not what the poster was implying (one could argue outright  

I've never met anyone who quoted "It takes X long" when X was mostly  
waiting for you to respond.  Why do you assume they would inflate  
their stats and make themselves look that bad in such a silly way?

That is not at all clear from the post above, or anything else in this  

Hell, I don't even see hate for AHBL.  I just see .. indifference.   
Just 'cause I and others do not want to use a service doesn't mean we  
hate it.
