I'm not surprised after that Tundra thread. Howard may have shown his usual sarcasm but IMO that was understandable in that case; after all, most OPs hereon want a cheap and quick and reliable solution, not a delayed "paid" solution of questionable reliability.
And from the boombox battery thread, maybe he sees a biased response from admin. (Why don't I get pulled up? Tho having said that, I was close to leaving after the deletion of some of my replies, but upon realising the small mindedness of the responsible litol I decided to stay.)    
I was close to being the first reply in that Tundra thread but glad I wasn't - I misunderstood the requirement and the suitability of Howard's diagram.
But Howard got it right. (Maybe others don't see the information that is missing from later responses?)
And for Howard to suffer a lack of support from others - especially from someone that stated "Rather than powering a coil, I prefer to prevent electrons from flowing in more than one direction. One is inherently more reliable, efficient, and more cost effective.... (Yes, the relay is more reliable and the diode is cheaper. But I doubt that's what that person meant...)
PS - I was originally going to reply with (a mere) "it's not Poor Howard" - it's poor us!

Yes, the forum has lost a very valuable resource.
