etc. snipped. I owe Mike an apology. And as statements were made on-list, I apologize to him on-list. The statement to which I replied was in a quoted bit. I assume Mike was replying to a private, off-list mail and sent it to the list by accident. I imagine many of us have done this at some time or other - I know I did once, and have been very careful since. My mailer didn't show the 'offending' bit as quoted, and I wrongly assumed it was Mike's statement - it wasn't. Eldin has written me off-list. He is happy I set the record straight about the May/June 'heresy' thread which members are can readily find in the archives and read for themselves if they wish. Please could this matter now be considered closed?
