I agree with you Kristian.  Sometimes things can get carried away, and
sometimes people come off as abrasive (more so to some than others.)  As you
mentioned earlier, the important thing is that we do not get out of hand
with it.  I will offer the olive branch and say that I do value Rick's input
whether it agrees with my own or not.  I guess it's for the best that we
table this...I'll admit that I was getting kind of irked, but in the end,
bickering doesn't solve anything.  No hard feelings Rick.
