I totally agree. One of the reasons why I value this list so much is the almost complete absence, usually, of flame wars like this. Moreover, though, I feel that anyone who insists on nitpicking everyone's faults should hold themselves to just as high a standard (for no one is perfect, intellectually or otherwise), and should not be at all disturbed if people respond in kind. This is, of course, what we *don't* want, so let's stop it here. ======================================================= Tom Wier <artabanos@...> ICQ#: 4315704 AIM: Deuterotom Website: <> "Cogito ergo sum, sed credo ergo ero." ========================================================
