We're going around in circles, folks. And there are way too many posts expressing frustration and indignation with other participants in this increasingly futile discussion. I too am getting both frustrated and impatient.
Someone attacks someone else. The targeted person responds with "righteous" indignation. So instead of discussing the case we are off to the races on a flame war. And when I start deleting such irrelevant and offensive posts to nip the war in the bud, I am attacked. So, to quote the (dis)honorable Richard Nixon, "let me make one thing perfectly clear": offensive posts, whether directed at fellow posters or at me personally WILL be deleted when and if I find them. I will also be deleting posts complaining about my policies, EVEN if the complaints seem reasonable. OK? My policies are my policies, I take responsibility for them, and I'm running the show -- and if you think I've done something unfair, please email me directly. But don't clutter this forum with off-topic issues.
I'm also tempted to delete redundant posts, containing little more than a rehash of what's been said before -- often many times before. So please folks, try to refrain from posting unless you have something fresh to contribute. And please try to avoid personal remarks, even if you feel they are justified. OK? Thank you.
NB: If anyone has trouble posting a comment, email it to doktorgosh (at) live.com, and I'll post it for you.
