I misaddressed my note.  My apologies.

Steve's parody of an FCC Enforcement Action was obviously meant to poke 
fun at those who think hams who are obese are unacceptable.  I agree 
with him on that point.  Someone's appearance does not define their 
character.  I have ham friends of all sizes, shapes, and colors.  There 
is no room for discrimination in this hobby.

I, too, have been disturbed by this thread's derogatory content to some 
of our ham confrères, but, as I said, I meant to direct my comment 
directly to Steve in a private message.  I did not intend to further 
lengthen this thread.  Again, my apologies.

73, Tony
