Wow. I guess we can now blame you for the state of the
market, eh? *lol*

Seriously though, if you take offense at someone's
opinion, that's your deal. The person you're
contending with has made a very valid point. You make
a valid point that this is a list in which to ask
questions. You're both right.

I do have to comment on your "drivel" comment though.
Are these threads really meaningless? Is it not
important that we discuss thoughts on the market in
which we work?
