For better or worse, apparently some viewers of this place apparently don't agree that a GEVO is a GEVO. And I suspect a growing number of viewers couldn't care less about superpower steam. I looked through your 611 posts and you have a lot of really nice images. Of course I'm one of those folks who like superpower steam. But I also found it interesting that at least in my view some of the your images that did get accepted are not as good as the ones that were rejected. So perhaps you should be grateful for small favors, and learn to accept that inconsistency is a fact of life here. And like Ron said, we do this for FUN.
