It must be the season... I had a discussion in a different list, with 
someone thinking the same way... (and it's on-topic, for that matter!)

see if you can follow this...

yeah, pretty much. that's how I feel about it.  Aren't I allowed that?

yeah, I'm seeing it too.

you're just too easily pissed off ;-)


Now, note that I -did- say "by and large", but he infers I meant 'anyone 
who doesn't'...  This same nimrod also accused me of  operating AM 
because I didn't posses the knowledge to build a SSB rig.    *sigh*   Do 
I -have- to point out that he doesn't posses the ability to comprehend 
what he's reading?

A lot of the newsgroups are having the same problems... seems to be a 
rash of ignorance and intolerance.

"Why is it that the narrowest of minds, are found in the fattest of heads?"

Spin the dial, manually actuate the "oh en slash oh ef eff selector 
device", or take your mail program and simply mark the entire thread as 
"read' so you don't look through it.

The options are -endless-
