Prune the tomato plants, part two

I didn't really follow all of the advice in the earlier post about pruning my plants. I've been reading on a larger debate about whether or not to prune at all, also how much to prune. I'm going to pinch the suckers only as I see fit and maybe top off the plants when I get some good fruit growing. I have flowers now, but the rainy-cold weather isn't helping them.
