of troy -- no one's arguing that stockinette curls.
The OP, as you say, knows/implies that stockinette curls; the issue wasn't so much "augh my nice flat stockinette stitch is CURLING" so much as "The method I used to balance out the curl didn't work well enough, what else can I do?"
(your post -- and blog rant -- did come across as a little angrier than I think you intended.
In part, I think, because the way it was phrased made it sound like the people posting in this thread, and similar threads, didn't realize that it did that. You're definitely right, though, that there can be some neat effects accomplished by taking advantage of the curling [rather than trying to defeat it].)
