I hope you feel better now... after telling me to do something I already
said I was going to do. Thanks for the humor.

Secondly, I wasn't arguing... said-- at length-- that, as silly as it
is, we'd just have to live with it. That wasn't arguing. And guess
what..? I didn't start this thread. (As if your haughty commands
matter) am I not allowed to follow up on a post here? Moreover, I was
about to let it drop... until you chose to reply to my post. (But I
guess you can reply to my post, but I can't reply to someone else's
post?!) You must believe you are the sole arbiter of who's allowed to
post and/or reply. How Mitty-esque.... Thanks for the humor.

Finally, I didn't mention anything about voting, but as long as you wish
to expand the discussion to that, I didn't vote because I didn't hear
about it because there's too much noise on this list to read every post
or even every subject line (most of which have no relation to the
content of the respective email anyway). So add one more vote (mine)
for "Reply is reply to the list" (as if we could vote away non-sense).

You have my permission to reply to this. :)
