Connecting this pick to the one of 5 years ago or whenever it was is only doing so on the most superficial and prejudicial of all reasons. Not saying that that's what you are personally doing (really it's not my intention to accuse you of that so don't take it that way), but you know there are idiots who do feel that way and that's most unfortunate.
