        Rob Flickenger has proven that the design concept behind the 
Pringles Cantenna is flawed, and has come up with improved designs 
that are significantly better using coffee cans.

        Moreover, neither a Pringles Cantenna nor a Coffee Cantenna are 
particularly stealthy.  A proper patch antenna can be extremely 
stealthy if you put it into unassuming looking plastic boxes (such as 
Tupperware) which you then place in a signal transparent cloth 
carrier such as a backpack or fanny pack, and can perform well enough 
for the task.

        Is there a particular reason why you find it necessary to attack 
someone for choosing not to use your favourite antenna design for an 
application where it may be very sub-optimal for what they are trying 
to achieve?

        Please do.  Then show us some pictures indicating how easily you 
can hide your various antennas.
