Eric, and Wrlr's,
My apologies to the group. As per Eric's suggestion below, I hereby acknowledge and explain my recent posting. I will of course ensure that such comments do not happen again.

Once again, this is a good example of how it is difficult to convey the context of a remark accurately in email. My motivations were in no way sinister: I honestly meant it purely in jest, to offer a lighthearted remark. This sometimes seems needed in the midst of a serious discussion. I also failed to read the regular posting that Eric makes reference to below, which included the rule about commenting on spelling and usage errors.

I sincerely hope that no members of the group were offended by my joke, or think less of me because of it. Peter especially, please forgive me for my error in judgement.
-Peggy Richardson
